The town of Amersham is perfect for anybody who is fascinated by the rich and colourful history of the United Kingdom. While there are no doubt older locations in and around England, few have the amount of exciting historical relics as those found in Amersham. This stunning slew of treasures from the past is made all the more interesting by the fact that the town is neatly split into "Old Amersham" and "Amersham on the Hill". Basically, the town offers the perfect juxtaposition that highlights the way our entire planet changed with the advent of the Industrial Revolution and the arrival of railways all across the continent. Amersham, then, resembles a living, breathing history book where one can simply turn the page by walking through the town.

Amersham has been documented in various tomes for over a thousand years and throughout the years the town has been the host to events involving such historical luminaries as Edward the Confessor and William the Conqueror. Unfortunately, such age also lends itself to the prevalence of dark bits of history. Among these kinds of events, perhaps none are worse than that occurred in 1521. During those days, a popular sect of the Christian faith existed that was known as Lollardism. This viewpoint was seen as a challenge to the Church and the State and thus anyone known to have Lollard ties were burned at the stake. Amersham was the host of just such a punishment and in that year seven Lollard dissenters were tied up in front of the town and burned to death. A memorial can still be seen in Amersham that documents this event and it will forever stand as a glaring mark on the sometimes extremist slant that organized religion has taken on at various times in our past. Old Amersham is also the home of some of the most beautiful churches in the area and, among them, St. Mary's Church is perhaps the most impressive and awe-inspiring of all. It is a Grade 1 listed building and for good reason: Many parts of the church date back to the 1600s and beyond. Clearly, Amersham offers both the best and the worst aspects of religion and its contributions to mankind.

Amersham on the Hill, on the other hand, is where most of the town's commerce and economy comes into play. Ever since the railways changed the landscape of the country Amersham on the Hill has distanced itself from its roots and a visitor to the town today will see the striking differences in the two sides of the town right away. This is what gives Amersham such a unique feel and flavor and it also allows the town to truly please everybody no matter where their interests may lie. Few towns pay due homage to their past and even fewer have maintained the edifices that hearken back to those days. Amersham, however, manages to please those that love history and those that love the technology and advancement of the present.
