A conservationist's 'My Chilterns'

  |  Published: Dec 6th 2016

As the logo says, the Chiltern Society's mission statement is 'We care for the Chilterns'. One person who has devoted much of his spare time to doing just that is Clive Ormonde.

He first volunteered to work on conservation projects aged 22 and has revisited some of these worksites, recording their features in scores of superb photographs, many of which have been reproduced in books.

His latest work involved compiling a new album of photographs for the Chiltern Society PhotoGroup's photo archive. Under the sub-heading 'My Chilterns', it is the latest addition to the group's Special Collections series of albums. The extended captions for the 38 photographs give a personalised account of his extensive exploration of the Chilterns that lies predominantly south-west of Henley-on-Thames.

The Chiltern Society PhotoGroup's archive of around 8,000 photographs is the most comprehensive online record of the Chilterns' special character, qualities and amenities. Besides recording the Chilterns for the benefit of future generations, several thousands of UK and overseas visitors, many with ancestral links to the region, access the archive each year.
