FOREWORD

Many of us know the joys of walking around the village of Cookham and how such walks can be enhanced by a knowledgeable friend to point out landmarks and points of interest. In this book, Brian Clews gives us the opportunity to have our walks illuminated by his observations, not only of the places and people of our village, but also the rich bird-life which surrounds us. Those of us who are yet to be awakened to an understanding of ornithology will want to keep this book as a constant companion to enhance our appreciation of this beautiful corner of Berkshire. As for those already versed in this fascinating field, they will appreciate the careful attention to detail.

All who know Cookham will enjoy this extremely readable account of life in our village as we move towards the end of this century, and Brian Clews will take his place alongside Darby, the Bootles, Roger Parkes and Luke Over, in preserving our history for future generations to enjoy.
