The first visitors through the door of the Chiltern Open Air Museum at Chalfont St Giles, Bucks on May 3 were in for a surprise.
It was the museums 30th anniversary, so Sue Press and Jeremy Tozer, with Elliott, aged three, from Woodley, near Reading, found they only had to pay 1981 prices for their visit. They are pictured with Museum Director Sue Shave, enjoying a glass of non alcoholic bubbly. The museum rescues the fascinating homes and workplaces of past generations and re-erects them on the site, such as a 19th century working farmyard and village with green. There are events throughout the year and June includes a visit by the Hertfordshire Heavy Horse Association. They will be there on June 19 with Shires, Clydesdales and Suffolk Punches putting on a spectacular demonstration, with arena events.
