Following the formal business of the afternoon, the Revd. Peter Godden has kindly offered to give us a short tour of the church and to tell us about its interesting history.
The church is a 11th century Grade I listed church in the Conservation Area of Monks Risborough. It is described in ‘Pevsners Architectural Guide’ as having a ‘secluded rural character’ and is noted for its Norman Font of typical Aylesbury design. The building is of a flint construction dating from the early 11th century. The peaceful and well kept churchyard has recently be extended with the creation of a wild meadow.
Jo Mirzoeff has written a very interesting article about the Monks Risborough and St. Dunstan’s Park which features an unusual example of a dovecot which John Nash drew when he lived nearby.
The article can be accessed at https://bucksgardenstrust.org.uk/our-news/st-dunstans-park-monks-risborough
After the AGM tea/coffee and cake will then be provided and then you are free to have a walk around the village and visit the Dovecot in the nearby playing field which was drawn by John Nash. Non members are welcome to join us at 2.30pm.
