Monument Cottage, Ashridge
This is the old Caretaker's Cottage, and the 1901 census shows the caretaker to be a 67 year old widow, Mrs Hannah Willmore. A postcard published a few years later show the cottage, much as it is today, and the 73 year old Mrs Willmore. It states that she had been caretaker for 27 years. (The old postcard can be seen on the Ashridge page of the Hertfordshire Genealogy website LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) .)
The Ashridge National Trust Estate
The Ashridge Estate covers a wide area of the Chiltern Hills on the Hertfordshire Buckinghamshire border, which provides open access to large woods and open grassland. There are many footpaths and bridleways - including part of the Ridgeway – and wonderful opportunities to observe wild life – including deer.
The Estate Office, Visitor Centre and Café are close to the Bridgewater Monument on Moneybury Hill, above the village of Aldbury.
