High Wycombe used to be famous for its chair-making industry. Today it’s home to 125,000 people thanks to its beautiful Georgian buildings and sprawling estates a mere 35 miles from London.

“I spend a lot of time making these small films from when the days were a lot different. most of the photos are from old books or old postcards. I love doing this to show you how life was way back then. Some people can not buy books or find things to do with local history so this is why I have done this for all of you.”
