- Stoke Poges & Chalfont St Giles |
A fascinating journey, both literally and figuratively, reveals a surprising link between two titans of English literature: Thomas Gray and John Milton. A guided tour of the recently restored Grade 2 Memorial Gardens in Stoke Poges is followed by a visit to the adjacent church and churchyard, where Gray's Elegy was composed. The morning concludes with a visit to Gray's Monument for a reading of the Elegy, with an afternoon guided tour of Milton's Cottage, Chalfont St Giles.
