Buckinghamshire - Princes Risborough
Princes Risborough is a small town in Buckinghamshire, England,
about 9 miles south of Aylesbury and 8 miles north west of High
Wycombe. Bledlow lies to the west and Monks Risborough to the east.
It lies at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, at the north end of a gap
or pass through the Chilterns, the south end of which is at West
Wycombe. The A4010 road follows this route from West Wycombe through
the town and then on to Aylesbury.
Historically it was both a Manor and an ecclesiastical parish, of
the same extent as the Manor, which comprised the present
ecclesiastical parish of Princes Risborough (excluding Ilmer) and
also the present ecclesiastical parish of Lacey Green, which became
a separate parish in the 19th century. It was long and narrow (a
"strip parish"), taking in land below the Chiltern scarp, the slope
of the scarp itself and also land above the scarp extending into the
Chiltern hills. The manor and the parish extended from Longwick in
the north through Alscot, the town of Princes Risborough, Loosley
Row and Lacey Green to Speen and Walters Ash in the south.
Since 1934 the civil parish of Princes Risborough (formerly the same
as the ecclesiastical parish) has included the town of Princes
Risborough, the village of Monks Risborough (but not the outlying
parts) and part of Horsenden but has excluded Longwick. It is within
the Wycombe district of Buckinghamshire and operates as atown
council within Wycombe district.
