Penn and Tylers Green is commemorating the centenary of the end of the First World War with a special Battle’s Over beacon-lighting ceremony on Tylers Green Common.

In addition there is an exhibition entitled Penn and Tylers Green in the Great War in Tylers Green Village Hall and two commemorative self-guided walks.

Fifty-eight crosses bearing the names of men associated with Penn and Tylers Green who died in the war are being installed on the common over the Remembrance weekend.

Everyone is also invited to visit the free exhibition in the village hall between 5 November and 19 November, which looks at life and events in the villages of Penn and Tylers Green between 1914 and 1918.

Maps for two self-guided walks around the village can also be obtained from the village hall from 5 November. For the first short circular tour local historian Ron Saunders has identified a dozen houses where men who were killed in the conflict lived.  The special commemoration trail enables people to learn more about them, and will be in place from 5 November to 19 November.

Fresh maps are also available for the Tylers Green Memorial Tree route. The trees were planted in memory of those on the Tylers Green War Memorial in the 1930s, revived in 2009 and have now had new plaques installed by members of the Hazlemere and district branch of the Royal British Legion.
