A Chalfont St Peter resident has been keeping people entertained by sharing pictures and videos of unusual places he visits.
Henry Allum set up his Facebook page “Henry’s Adventures” in 2016 which now reaches almost 10k followers. He also has a YouTube channel where he shares his adventures.
Henry admitted he had no idea his page would get so much interest from people.
Speaking to ChalfontsNews, he revealed: “I would visit a variety of different places, castles, railways, rivers, churches, disused railways. I’d often take pictures but then came up with the idea to make a short video at some of these places and see how it went.
“I’m open to visiting just about anywhere. I especially like historic sites but also enjoy visiting new places such as when a new railway station opens. I also enjoy following anything that goes anywhere such as rivers, railways, disused railways, canals and long distance paths.
“I’ve always had an interest in history and travel. Nearly everyday I will go out of the house, sometimes just for a local walk, other times to visit somewhere I haven’t been before.
“If I hear of any interesting trains running such as a steam train passing through Gerrards Cross I’ll go and film it.”
Since studying Countryside Management at university Henry also had a few jobs in the travel and tourism industry.
When asked what’s the place he enjoyed visiting the most, he said: “That’s a very hard question for me to answer. Favourite place locally would have to be Bekonscot Model Village. Favourite city in Europe is Budapest.
“Last place I visited was the village of Long Marston in Hertfordshire to see its ruined church tower.”
Henry said he is grateful to see so many people enjoy following his adventures and he said: “Thank you very much for joining me. I really appreciate your support and keep an eye out for more videos on the way.
“Sometimes I receive requests from people, asking me to visit specific places. The first request I had was to make a video on a hotel in the Peak District and got a free night’s stay.
“More locally Ruislip Lido Railway invited me to make a video with some behind the scenes access.”
