About Princes Risborough: Princes Risborough is a small town positioned in Buckinghamshire, England, UK, it stands roughly 8 miles north-west of High Wycombe and around 9 miles to the south of the county town, Aylesbury. In 2011, Princes Risborough boasted a population of 8,101 (a modest rise on the 2001 census figure of 7,978). The town lays at the foot of the beautiful Chiltern Hills and can be reached via the A4010 which runs between Stoke Mandeville and West Wycombe.

When the Domesday Book was compiled in 1086, the town was called Risborough and was a royal manor (before the conquest held by King Harold). The name comes from the old English meaning roughly "brushwood covered hills" or "scrub covered hills". The name was changed to Princes Risborough after it was held by the Black Prince (Edward) in 1344. This area was of course inhabited a long time before this and in all likelihood developed as a stop for those travelling between the River Thames and the Icknield Way, due to its lying in a wide gap in the Chiltern Hills.

Princes Risborough became a market town in the early Sixteenth Century after it was issued a royal charter by King Henry VIII, this permitted it to put on a market every week (each Thursday) and two annual fairs (still held presently in October and May).

Princes Risborough today is a busy little town, although the centre and High Street area has been somewhat quieter since the development of the "by-pass" New Road in 1987.
