Travel Tips for High Wycombe

Not for the itinerary but not bad

by Edmundo11

Wycombe is much like many other towns, and is certainly not the best place to visit in an area that contains Henley, Marlow, etc.

However, if you do find yourself there then there is plenty to see:

The surrounding countryside is full of good walking;

West Wycombe is very pretty and is home to a stately home and caves that played host to debauched social gatherings of the 18th Century highbrow (including B Franklin!);

Hughenden Manor was the home of Disraeli and is open to the public; and

The town is perfectly placed to visit London (30 mins on the train) as well as Windsor and Oxford.

Weighing the Mayor

by SallyM

Each May, the incoming and outgoing Mayors are weighed at a public ceremony in the town.

The idea is to see whether they have gained weight at the taxpayers' expense. The mayor goes on a crash diet during April, hoping to avoid the dreaded words "and some more!"

Pann Mill

by SallyM

Pann Mill is an old water mill that has been lovingly restored by the High Wycombe Society.

There are occasional open days during the year when the mill will be working and grinding wholemeal flour, water levels permitting.

It is located on the main A40 road into Wycombe from London, adjacent to the Rye.

Woods Walk

by Rosie-o

Unfortunately, Wycombe (like most of Britain) is prone to stinking like dog excrement ... A serious problem if you like walking for exercise. However this short walk through the woods is quite pleasant, and less smelly than most areas in the Wycombe region. Start at the laneway which runs along the graveyard at Priory Road, once the boneyard ends cross the main road and follow the dirt path through the woods. You end up around the back of Royal Grammar School. It isn't the best walk in the world - but it beats walking up and down Amersham Hill all the time.

High Wycombe - posh name, crap town

by Elodie_Caroline


The ancient Borough of High Wycombe was once an important settlement. It already had six work mills here by the time the Domesday Book was written. and it's borough status was formalised in the first charter in 1237.

Industries developed with medievil cloth weaving mills, followed in the 17th century by paper and lace making mills. Then the 18th century brought the rise of the furniture industry on a mass scale, which made it into a prosperous industrial town. Alas, there aren't any of these mills or furniture factories since the days of Margaret Thatcher in the 1980s and early 1990s.

The main road that runs through the town of High Wycombe is the A40, so links London to the city of Oxford; because of this, it had and still has many Inns/pubs along the way, sort of like the olden day service stations. It's markets used to be an important part of the town too, but there aren't any of those left either.

The name Wycombe is derived from the river 'Wy' and 'combe' means valley; though gawd knows where the high comes in if it's in a valley?


If you don't like what you see on my pages, don't go snivelling in your creep-arsed kind of ways to get my stuff removed, just bugger off to someone's nice and granny style pages, okay!!!
