A Chiltern Farm
Flint, the true local building stone of the chalk country, has been extensively used in the building of the farmhouse and walls in the picture on the left. The house also shows half-timbered work, as might be expected in a district so heavily wooded as the Chilterns. Notice too, the black timber barn, a typical feature of the area.
