Outstanding Week is the AONB Family’s week-long programme of events to help people enjoy and be inspired by the UK’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs).
This year it takes place from Saturday 16th – Sunday 24th September. In the Chilterns we have planned two major events to support Outstanding Week and help people get to know their AONBS. The first is the Chilterns Autumn Walking Festival which offers a wide range of walks, activities and events to help people explore this special area; the second is our Annual Forum on 26th September where we will welcome Dame Fiona Reynolds (former Director-General of the National Trust) alongside our Chief Officer (Sue Holden) and Howard Davies (Chief Executive of the National Association for Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty) to explore the fight for beauty in relation to the Chilterns and our protected areas.
AONBs are some of the most beautiful, cherished and outstanding landscapes in Britain. They are vibrant landscapes which offer a wealth of opportunities for everyone to enjoy them. They are open year round and Outstanding Week is a great opportunity for you to get involved and get out into the outstanding countryside on your doorstep.
