About Cholesbury-&-St Leonards Parish Map

This Parish Map aims to capture what is special about our community and forms one part of the celebrations for the Millennium in the parish of Cholesbury-&-St Leonards. In making this map many people from the local community have been brought together to contribute their ideas and talents with the much valued help and advice of others from beyond the parish.

The basis for what was finally included in the map was a questionnaire distributed to all households in the Parish. Some of the ideas local people suggested for inclusion in the parish map could be illustrated by photographs, drawings or stitchcraft. However, the feelings expressed by parishioners could only be partly expressed through such images. The narrative which flows across the cross section of the Parish at the base of the map records these feelings as well as the features and activities of Cholesbury-&-St Leonards Parish around the year 2000.

The map is A1 size (33 x 24 inches approx) and is full colour. All the images are reproduced from original photographs, watercolour drawings, and stitch-craft especially commissioned for the map. The central area of the map depicts to scale every household and all key buildings within the parish; All roads and fields and hedgerows are included. The background of the map comprises re-drawn contour lines to depict the topography of this area of the Chilterns.
