Ecological Flora of the Central Chilterns

A comprehensive study of the flora of the central area of the Chilterns in Buckinghamshire has been undertaken by Tony Marshall and is being made available for downloading free of charge from this web site.

The first 15 well-illustrated sections covering trees, spore-bearing plants and some monocotyledons are currently available.

Orchids of the Chilterns

The latest section of Tony Marshall’s book “Ecological Flora of the Central Chilterns”  describes the numerous species of wild orchids which can be found in our section of the Chiltern Hills.   

These are some of the most delicate and beautiful of flowers;  one or two species are plentiful but most are found in only a few places and flower for just a short period of time.

Click here to download,  free of charge,  this section of Tony’s book.  Also you can subscribe free of charge to receive new sections and updates as they are released.
