Old Murder Mystery in Amersham – Can Anyone Help?

I have received an email asking if I can help with a possible old mystery about a murder in Amersham many years ago.  The writer tells me “I recall that a popular woman GP was murdered in the woods above Old Amersham, her name might have been Davison.  On the widely held belief that a murderer always returns to the scene of the crime, my father was allocated the night watch, which he spent up in a tree, my guess quite high.  Probably to his intense relief the murderer did not appear and I believe was never caught.”

Can anyone remember this case and what the outcome was?  A Google search has not revealed anything, but it was probably reported locally.

Mystery Amersham Craters – Anyone Know What they Are?

I have recently been sent the attached picture and map.  The picture shows 3 indentations in a field, which are in a line and look unnatural. I am wondering if anyone knows what they might be?

I don’t think they would be bomb craters from WW2, perhaps they are where clay was dug out ages ago.  They do seem to be a mystery, so if anyone knows, please let me know.

They are marked on the map, (they are across the valley from the A&W college).
