Because there is still much that we do not yet know, the editor hopes that visitors to the website will be able to provide more photos and information for the website.  Please use the “CONTACT US“ button above if you have corrections or additions. Amersham Museum thanks all those who have contributed to this community website.  Click on the button in the left hand column of this page to see the list of over 100 contributors.
