Our Chalk, Cherries and Chairs Landscape Connections project team – Nick Marriner and Harriet Bennett – will share their experiences of working with a passionate group of farmers to restore chalk grassland in the Central Chilterns over the last four years.

They will tell the story of the Central Chilterns Farmer Cluster, how it came about, what it’s been doing, and how the Chilterns Conservation Board has supported the project. They will also share lots of exciting news about their chalk grassland and hedgerow projects, ecological advice packages, and chalk stream restoration works, alongside information on how they have supported new volunteers to carry out practical conservation work, undertaken groundbreaking wildlife surveying, and inspired young people to get their first experience of conservation.

Come along to find out more and enjoy local nibbles to from local farms that we have worked with; Lacey’s farm and Buckmoorend farm!


Wades Centre is within walking distance of the town of Princes Risborough and the mainline railway station. Car parking is available for disabled users adjacent to the building and there is a 144-space public car park across the road.

About Chilterns Chalk

The landscape, wildlife and cultural heritage of the Chiltern Hills has been shaped by its underlying chalk bedrock – formed millions of years ago, but still having an impact today. Our Chilterns Chalk Festival celebrates this connection to our landscape, both ancient and modern.
