Whiteleaf is a hamlet in Buckinghamshire that we visited to see the monumental chalk cross carved into the hillside that dominates the horizon of the village. We went up at dusk to explore the cross and found not only had it snowed up there but some WWI practices trenches, a neolithic barrow and an enigmatic message scratched in pen onto the broken information board overlooking the chalk slope. Here's a painting Paul Nash made in 1931 of the Whiteleaf Cross.
