Chiltern Society

Our vision is to maintain the uniqueness of the Chilterns in the face of growing pressures on this part of the country. The Chilterns is not just the range of hills you may be familiar with, it covers a large 650 square mile area across parts of four English counties: Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, and Bedfordshire.

Our aims

  • to promote high standards of planning and architecture, and argue against developments that will spoil the area
  • to tell people about the Chilterns’ unique character and history and encourage them to walk or cycle in the area, and visit attractions
  • to help people conserve and improve footpaths, rivers and streams, areas of tranquillity, heritage buildings and landscapes.
  • to encourage people of all ages to enjoy and care for the natural environment and beauty of the area.
