The Preston Trust: ‘ Beating The Bounds’ of our parish, 2019
Years ago, the clergy and laity of each parish used to walk along the boundary of their parish. This enabled everyone to know the extent of their rights and responsibilities as parishioners. This tradition was known as ‘Beating the Bounds’, and took place on Rogation Sunday in May.
The Preston Trust committee thought it might be interesting for our present day parishioners to have 3 ‘Boundary Walks and Talks’ this summer/autumn. Our small patch of the Chiltern landscape has different habitats, gentle slopes and really splendid views! We will be walking on footpaths, bridleways, and, for short stretches, on the lanes.
All 3 Walks will start and finish on The Green, and will last for c. 2 hours; the 3rd will be nearer to 3 hours. We would like the group to be not less than 10 people and not more than 25. Accompanied youngsters over 10 years are very welcome. Fit and well behaved dogs on their leads are also welcome. There are no public toilets near to the line of the boundary; hedges may have to suffice, if needed. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Dates and times are as follows:
- JULY 20th, 10.00am – 12 noon: The Eastern Boundary Walk
- AUGUST 17th , 10.00am – 12 noon: The Southern and Western Boundary Walk
- SEPTEMBER 14th, 9.30am – c.12.30pm: The Northern Boundary Walk
The Eastern Boundary Walk: the route will be The Green – Wain Wood – Harkness Hall- Poynders End – Ladygrove – then across the PHC park and back to The Green. We have now been granted permission, for this day only, by three local farmers to walk across short stretches of their land, so that we may keep as close as possible to the line of the parish boundary.
Booking to take part is essential. Please drop a note into my letterbox at Rose Cottage, or email me on email@example.com, to say which Walk/s you would like to join.
