About Princes Risborough: Princes Risborough is a small market town situated in Buckinghamshire, England, it sits approximately eight miles to the north-west of High Wycombe and approximately nine miles to the south of Aylesbury. In 2011, Princes Risborough had 8,101 residents (a rise on the 2001 census figure of 7,978). The town lies at the foot of the picturesque Chiltern Hills and is accessed via the A4010 which runs between Stoke Mandeville and West Wycombe.

At the time of the Domesday Book in 1086, the town was called Risborough and was a royal manor (previously controlled by King Harold). Its name derives from the old English which means more or less "brushwood covered hills" or "scrub covered hills". The town changed its name to Princes Risborough when the manor was held by Edward the Black Prince in 1344. The area was without a doubt inhabited centuries before this and in all probability developed as a resting place for travellers going between the Icknield Way and the River Thames, with it lying favourably in a wide opening in the Chiltern Hills.

Princes Risborough has been a market town since 1523 when it was issued a royal charter by Henry VIII, this allowed it to put on a market weekly (Thursdays) and 2 annual fairs (still held currently in May and October).

Nowadays Princes Risborough is a vibrant little town, although the centre and High Street area has been somewhat quieter since the completion of the "by-pass" New Road in the 1980's.
