Inscription on stile and gate at Fingest Wood
Inscription on stile and gate at Fingest Wood
This photo shows a metal inscription on a stile and gate at the edge of Fingest Wood. It says the following:

THIS STILE IS ERECTED IN MEMORY OF
HENRY BRIDGES FEARON (1907 - 1995),
WHO AS "FIELDFARE" BROUGHT THE
LOVE OF THE ENGLISH COUNTRYSIDE TO A
MULTITUDE OF HAPPY PILGRIMS

"O lucky lucky travellers .... rest awhile
beside my simple country stile.
My eyes have looked across this valley,
and my heart has pounded at the beauty of it".

Incidentally, Fieldfare used to publish walks in the Thursday issues of the old London Evening News during the 1950s and 60s. Most of them were in the Chilterns, but he also included others in the Home Counties and London from time to time.
