A visit to Coombe Hill in Buckinghamshire, near Wendover

War memorial on Coombe Hill near Wendover in Buckinghamshire
A War memorial was erected, and unveiled on Coombe Hill, near Wendover in 1904, in memory of the men from Buckinghamshire who had died in the Boer War. Standing some 257m (843ft) above sea level (about 3m lower than the summit of the hill) on the edge of steep escarpment, it can be seen from a great distance, and a hint of the excellent panoramic view can be seen from this photo.
