Poetry Landmarks

Milton's Cottage, Chalfont St Giles


(Associated Place)


This beautifully preserved cottage is the 'small box' that Milton retreated to from London during the height of the plague. There he wrote Paradise Lost, one of the greatest poems in the English language. If ever there was a poetry landmark in the country, this is it.
