Marlow

 Marlow is a thriving and beautiful town in Buckinghamshire with a population of 17,000. It sits on the bank of the River Thames and is famous for its fine suspension bridge which was built between 1829-1832. There are many fine period buildings along the High Street and West Street (mainly Georgian), and beautiful walks along the river.

In the 11th century, Marlow was ringed by monastic foundations, and the remains of a 12th century chapel and crypt still exist at Widmer Farm. In St. Peter Street you will find The Old Parsonage and Deanery, which form part of the finest 14th century house in Buckinghamshire. Marlow Place, which dates from 1721, formed part of the Royal Military College before it moved to Sandhurst in 1812.

Just along the river is the superb 18th century Court Garden House, which is now part of a leisure complex.

High Wycombe

High Wycombe is today a lively, modern location with plenty of attractions.

The town centre has some beautiful Georgian architecture, including the Little Market House (or Pepper Pot, as it's often known), and the stunning Guildhall. There has been a market in the high street since medieval times and you'll still find farmer's produce and goods for sale.

High Wycombe also has the curious honour of being the only town to weigh its mayors in the annual tradition of Mayor Making. The tradition started to ensure that the mayor wasn't getting fat at the taxpayer's expense!

If you need a little peace and quiet after your shopping trip, head out to the beautiful, serene Chilterns Countryside surrounds High Wycombe on all sides.

Henley

A 12th century South Oxfordshire market town, Henley’s historic heart sits a few strides from the river Thames. The main street has many Georgian frontages covering older buildings and among the 300 buildings within the town designated 'of special architectural or historical interest' are St Mary’s church, the town hall, market place and Henley Bridge. Pick up '10 Brilliant things to do', the Henley Environment Trail, the 'Henley Architectural Trail' the Henley Town Map or the Visit Midsomer - Southern Trail leaflets to provide more inspiration.

Henley’s riverside location – surrounded by a Chiltern landscape of wooded hills and green fields – lends itself to relaxation, long lunches and power shopping. There’s a pub where Charles I drank, a Chantry house, a butcher that smokes his own bacon and shops still offering a personal touch.

This is a town dedicated to enjoying the river. So bring a picnic, pick up a copy of Wind in the Willows and settle for an hour on the waterfront.  Watch others messing about on the river, or hire a boat and join in the fun – the summer straw boater and stripy blazer combo is optional.

 Winner of a Britain-in-Bloom Gold medal, this 13th century market town is one of the most beautiful towns in England.  Henley enjoys a wonderful stretch of river with delightful independent shops, brilliant pubs, numerous cafes and great restaurants, while throughout the summer it hosts internationally renowned sporting events and festivals.


Henley is full of charming independent shops including our very own Boatique, where you can buy all sorts of boaty things including gifts and furnishings.

PRESTWOOD.  Nr GT MISSENDEN

It includes the picturesque villages of Ballinger Common, South Heath, Prestwood, Heath End and Hyde End, as well as the historic village of Great Missenden with its Augustine Abbey and many listed buildings.

The Parish is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, surrounded by rolling chalk hills, magnificent beech woods, quiet valleys and charming brick and flint villages. Views from some of the spectacular local walks reveal tapestries of woods, fields, hedges, sunken lanes and clear streams. Wildlife too is varied and interesting. There has been a successful reintroduction of red kites in the area and some of our commons have rare species of orchids and butterflies. Local nature groups run many activities such as pond dipping, badger watching, moth trapping and bird watching.

The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre opened in Great Missenden in June 2005 and is a very popular attraction for schools and families. Roald Dahl was the author of many well-known children’s stories including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The BFG and many of his tales are set in locations within the Parish, such as Great Missenden library referred to in Matilda.

ASTON CLINTON


Aston Clinton is situated about 4 miles to the south-east of Aylesbury, and can be accessed via the A41.

A village and parish located 4 miles to the east of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire, Aston Clinton grew up around the junction of Akeman Street and the Icknield Way. The parish has an area of 3,809 acres and a population of 3,543, it was settled in Saxon times and listed in the Domesday Book (1086) as Estone (Eastern Estate).

The parish church, St Michael and All Angels dates from the 12th century, it had further additions in the 13th and 14th centuries and was fully restored in the 19th century (1867).

One of the village’s claims to fame is that it gave part of it’s name to the Aston Martin car, after test runs and a hillclimbing competition on the nearby Aston Hill (it would otherwise have been called Bamford Martin which doesn’t quite have the same ring!).
