Chalk, Cherries & Chairs
Chalk, Cherries and Chairs is a five-year project inspiring people to learn something new, get involved and take action as Chilterns Champions.
Chalk, Cherries & Chairs is an ambitious scheme which aims to connect people to the wildlife and cultural heritage of the central Chilterns.
About Chalk, Cherries & Chairs
Why is this important?
The Chalk, Cherries & Chairs scheme was conceived to address the real and immediate challenges facing the Central Chilterns. These include: HS2, ancient woodland being sold off, wildlife habitats fragmenting through development, traditional orchards and hedgerows disappearing, and an increasing disconnect between people and their local landscape.
What do we want to achieve?
The Chalk, Cherries & Chairs scheme will leave an important legacy. We intend to establish improved conservation and land management, closer partnership working, improved skill-sets, motivated volunteers, and engaged and aware communities who care for the future of their heritage.

How can you get involved or support us?
We are looking for volunteers to get involved in our ancient routeways projects – researching, surveying and helping us uncover the mysteries of these routes and ditches!
Several projects are already underway, and many more are launching soon. If you want to follow our latest updates, register for our newsletter on the right, or head over to our Instagram or Facebook page and follow us on Twitter.
