VOLUNTEER tour guides have been awarded badges for five years of helping out at a National Trust site.

History enthusiast John Waller, 67, of Cobb Road, Berkhamsted, has actually worked as a guide at Boarstall Tower in Bucks for eight years.

He’s pictured above (far right) with fellow badge-winning volunteers at the site.

John said: “Boarstall has an incredibly interesting history, with some wonderful stories from the past, including sieges during the Civil War, a poisoning and visits by Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier.”

Boarstall Tower, built in 1312, will be open from 2pm to 5pm every Wednesday from May 4. To learn more, visit
