Chamber's House Restored!

For all of its 50 years of operation the Kalamunda History Village has relied upon the generous time given by its wonderful volunteers. Recent events at the Kalamunda History Village have added to the Covid 19 disruption, particularly the extensive damage to the century old Post Office and Chambers House caused by tree branches. Rather than see numbers dwindle, the volunteers have been attending in even larger numbers and their countless hours of effort in the Village, Stirk Cottage and the museum collection mean that the Kalamunda History Village will be able to re-open soon.  Thank you to the volunteers, through their fantastic efforts the KDHS looks forward to opening the History Village so that we can show off the restored Front Parlour of Chambers House.

Were you a "£10 POM"?

Did you come to High Wycombe in the 50s or 60s?

In 1958 Sloan Holmes opened the "High Wycombe  Estate" development. Later, Landalls continued the development with custom built homes focusing on English migrants.

The Maida Vale district became the locations of Maida Vale and High Wycombe - both very English names!

We hope to hold a public meeting some time in the next few months.
