This is a picture I took on the way to Coombe Hill, see my previous post. Its Pitstone Windmill but its actually closer to Ivinghoe, I am not sure if its in Hertfordshire or Buckinghamshire but I think its Buckinghamshire, the border is very near anyway. Its about 20 miles from me, halfway between where I was born and raised in Rickmansworth, to where I live now. In my younger days a lot of my cycle road racing was done in this area. Chiltern Hills being the attraction ! I remember one of the race HQ’s was in the Youth Hostel at Ivinghoe.
My older UK readers might just remember the comedian and actor Bernard Miles. His character of the country farm worker was based in Pitstone as its where he lived. He used to do long humorous monologues. I found this one on YouTube, click here for a bit of good old fashioned humour.
