Canadians Interpretation Board

08 November 2017

In Autumn the WWI Centenary focus shifted to the Canadian troops that arrived in Ampthill a hundred years ago to fell trees and support the war effort. These men developed a warm bond with the people of Ampthill and a year later they departed as friends. The Alameda Walk was spared the axe and Cooper’s Hill has regenerated into the tranquil heath that we now hold dear. Today, a permanent Canadian's interpretation board has been installed in The Alameda by the Cenotaph. We hope that you will visit this welcome addition to The Alameda and learn more about the Canadian's time in Ampthill.
