Picnic on Coombe Hill Original Painting
Picnic on Coombe Hill
The monument is an iconic Buckinghamshire landmark and a Grade II listed. At 850 feet (260 m) above sea level, it sits on one of the highest and most striking spurs of the Chilterns, commanding a wide view of the Vale of Aylesbury. On a clear day, it can be seen from the Berkshire Downs and the Cotswolds to the west. The view overlooks Chequers the country home of the Prime Minister.
The monument was erected in 1904, by public subscription, in memory of 148 men from Buckinghamshire who died during WW1. Coombe Hill Monument was almost totally destroyed by lightning in 1938 and was rebuilt in the same year.
