Princes Risborough

View Larger Map

A pleasant market town on the Icknield Way between Aylesbury and High Wycombe. It is said to take its name from its association with the Black Prince, who had a castle there.

The town has a large, but heavily restored church, and a handsome 17th century Manor House built around a magnificent jacobean staircase and balustrade. The Manor House was eventually bought by the Rothschilds and presented by them to the National Trust in 1952. The Roman Catholic church of St Teresa (1937) is also of great interest, having a distinctive modern Byzantine style. The church was built in a triangular shape (architecturally symbolic of the Holy Trinity), with a large central dome surmounted by a cross.

It is said that the last regular stagecoach service to run in England, in 1898, ended its journey from London in Princes Risborough. The town has seen its population rise from 2,400 in 1883 to some 8,200 today. This has inevitably led to change and relatively large housing development. While these have created their own individuality, they all remain in harmony with the heart of the old town.
