Amersham Union House

Announcement Date: 12th August 1854

On Tuesday the inmates of this house (through the private liberality of the guardians) moved off in wagons and vans to Penn Street, where they were regaled with an unlimited supply of roast and boiled beef, mutton, and beer, followed by cake and tea, and sundry little luxuries. The old men had tobacco given them likewise, and the old women snuff, which appeared to add considerably to their enjoyments. The Amersham Band was in attendance and played several popular airs, and a very happy day was spent, closing with a dance.
