At Parslow's Hillock in Lacey Greene is the "Pink and Lily", a favourite inn of the young poet Rupert Brooke, in the days immediately prior to the Great War. Maybe a walk along this open stretch of road from Lacey Green, prompted him to reflect on, "White mist about the black hedgerows, The slumbering midland plain...", in his work entitled "The Chilterns". Memories of visits to the "Pink and Lily" may have been in his mind, when he wrote:  "I shall desire and I shall find The best of my desires; The autumn road, the mellow wind That soothes the darkening shires, And laughter, and inn-fires."
