Halton, Buckinghamshire


Halton is a picturesque group of cottages in the park of Halton House, 2 m. N. of Wendover. The church, built in 1813, is charmingly situated, but is very ugly within and without. On the N. wall of chancel, behind hangings, is a brass effigy of Henry Bradshawe, Chief Baron of the Exchequer, 1553.

Halton House is a conspicuous object between the village and the Chilterns. The fine shrubberies and plantations are worthy of notice.

When war broke out in August 1914 the Northumberland Fusiliers went to War Stations in Berkhamsted, but Alfred Rothschild made his house available and the soldiers relocated in Halton.  Their place at Berkhamsted was taken by the Inns of Court Regiment.

The Camp later became used for training aviators, and the origins of the Royal Air Force.

While Halton is in Bucks the post was handled through Tring.

We have just passed along the footpath from which this photo was taken - quite near the house - Baron Rothschild's - a glorious place. Weather rather nice today but terrible yesterday afternoon. We are having a good time.
