Buckinghamshire - Great Missenden
Great Missenden is a large village in the Misbourne Valley in
the Chiltern Hillsin Buckinghamshire, England, situated between the
towns of Amersham and Wendover. It closely adjoins the villages of
Little Missenden and Prestwood. The narrow High Street is bypassed
by the main A413 London to Aylesbury Road. The source of the
Misbourne is to be found just north of the village, although the
upper reach of the river runs only in winter and the perennial head
is in Little Missenden. The village is now best known as home to the
late Roald Dahl, the internationally famous children's author.
Great Missenden lay on a major route between the Midlands and
London. Several coaching inns, particularly the Red Lion (now an
estate agency) and The George (which still exists), provided rest
and refreshment for travellers and their horses. The first railway
line in the area was, however, routed alongside the Grand Union
Canal to the east. Once the coaches stopped running Great Missenden
declined in importance and prosperity, becoming an agricultural
village. Following the arrival of the Metropolitan Railway, (later
the London Underground Metropolitan Line) in 1892, Great Missenden
became a commuter village for London with writers, entertainers and
even Prime Ministers among the passengers. Great Missenden railway
station is now on the Chiltern Railwaysline and offers services
running into London Marylebone.
