Princes Risborough Guide

Princes Risborough is a small country town, lying in the picturesque Vale of Aylesbury close to the western escarpment of the Chiltern Hills. The town lies on the former Roman road, the Icknield Way, and is dominated by the Whiteleaf Cross, an ancient chalk carving in the hills above the town, restored in 2003. With significant links to medieval royal politics, the town retains a considerable sense of history, while its essentially rural nature continues to attract those moving out of London for a quieter, less stressful life in the country.
