It has been said that for most of the last thousand years The Clappers functioned as a rabbit warren. An existing minor Iron Age earthwork had been adapted in the medieval period to create the warren. There was supposed to have been an iron age settlement there and now the Clappers look down on the village of Sharpenhoe. The Dunstable Downs are a part of the Chiltern Hills, chalk hills that are home to many beautiful creatures. Wildflowers and childhood memories.
It is also the setting in part for a book by a local author, Carrie King.

The really nice thing about modern communications available to us, like Facebook and blogs like this. It has made it easy to renew friendships, and contact lost family members. We can share our memories and keep them alive.
Carries books are all about those days of childhood. You can click on the links to read more about Carrie and her books. (The highlighted areas)
