Haddenham, Buckinghamshire

Haddenham’s charm needs to be discovered on foot. This village has thatched cottages and timber-framed houses, but are mostly hidden behind white boundary walls. These are quite distinctive, as they are topped by red pantiles, giving an almost Mediterranean feel to the village when the sun shines. New buildings have matched the old building materials, which was “wichert”, a mixture of chalk marl and straw.

At one time, a thriving duck breeding business was carried on from the duck pond, which adjoins St. Mary’s churchyard wall.

About The Photographer

Alison Avery

I hope that you enjoy browsing the photographs on my website. They demonstrate the rich variety of scenery we have in Britain within a relatively short distance. It has been a great pleasure for me to visit different parts of the country to capture the beauty of our countryside, coast and villages. For as long as I can remember, I have loved taking photographs and drawing and painting pictures of British scenes. I am continually adding more photographs to the website.
