Iver & Iver Heath

Iver is recorded in the Domesday Book (Yfer - the word meaning a steep slope) but the first mention of Iver Heath (Everheth) seems to be about 1365. It was a sparsely populated area criss-crossed with many tracks and footpaths. Dick Turpin is reputed to have roamed the Heath.

Memories of Langley

I was born in Langley, Bucks, in March 1924 and have lived in Bucks the best part of my life. We used to walk through fields and over the farm land which stretched for miles around and wander along the stream running into Datchet. Over the last few years many houses and new housing estates have been built
£ and all farms and fields done away with. In the village there was a blacksmith in a tiny row of houses, now turned into a block of modern houses, and also a home-made bakery which was there for years. It was run by Mr and Mrs Rymes and family. They are quite old now.
