Sign explains history and views from Tom Burt's Hill
People enjoying wonderful panoramic views of High Wycombe and the valley from Tom Burt’s Hill will now be able to explore its history following the addition of a new sign.
Wycombe District Council has installed an informative sign which highlights some of the town’s landmarks and points of interest that can be seen from the hill.
The history of the open space, along with old photos showing how the town looked from the hill in the past, is also explained on the new panoramic sign.
Wycombe District Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Cllr Julia Adey said: “The view of Wycombe and the valley from Tom Burt’s Hill is wonderful and this new sign will compliment that by informing people of the rich history of the town and the hill.”
Tom Burt’s Hill became a public open space in 1937 when the Borough of Chepping Wycombe purchased 19.5 acres of land from Rupert Victor John Baron Carrington.
The sign was paid for out of a S106 developer contribution fund.
