The Amersham Martyrs' Memorial
The Amersham Martyrs' Memorial
The memorial stands on a small dedicated piece of ground on a hillside overlooking Amersham old town. It was erected in 1931 and commemorates martyrs who were burned at the stake in 1521, for reading and interpreting the bible in their own way, in English (one of the principles that led to the Reformation and Protestantism).

At the base of this west face is the 1931 dedication.
