Description :

  • Chiltern Open Air Museum is a museum of vernacular buildings and a tourist attraction located near Chalfont St Peter and Chalfont St. Giles in the Chiltern Hills, Buckinghamshire, England.

  • The museum was founded in 1976 and aims to rescue and restore common English buildings from the Chilterns, which might otherwise have been destroyed or demolished.

  • The buildings have been relocated to the museum's 45-acre (180,000 m2) site, which includes woodland and parkland.

  • The museum's collection includes 16 buildings that are in storage and due for re-erection as and when the museum's funds permit.
