Bats are a spooky symbol of Hallowe'en and we have many bat roosts in the Thames and Chilterns area. Wildlife adviser Jo Hodgkins is batty about bats and busts a few myths about these fascinating little mammals.
From the magnificient oaks and beeches on the Ashridge Estate in Hertfordshire to the home of the UK's largest horse chestnut tree at Hughenden in Buckinghamshire - trees and landscapes are in full autumn glory across the Thames Valley.
There are loads of friendly National Trust supporter groups in the Thames Valley. They help support our places like Stowe, Hughenden and Greys Court by volunteering and fundraising. They also get together for fun days out, holidays and lectures.
