PRESTWOOD.  Nr GT MISSENDEN

The Parish of Great Missenden lies at the centre of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty,  10 miles from the County Town of Aylesbury. 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!).
