Visitors to Tom Burt’s Hill in High Wycombe will now be able to explore its history following the addition of a new sign.
Installed by Wycombe District Council, the sign (pictured above) highlights some of the landmarks and points of interest in the town that can be seen from the hill.
Old photos showing how the town looked from the hill in the past, together with a history of the hill is also explained on the new panoramic sign.Cllr Julia Adey, Wycombe District Council’s Cabinet Member for Community, 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 new sign was paid for out of a S106 developer contribution fund.
