About Princes Risborough: Princes Risborough is a small market town found in the county of Buckinghamshire, England, it lies about 8 miles north-west of High Wycombe and roughly nine miles south of Aylesbury (the county town). In 2011, Princes Risborough was home to a population of 8,101 (a rise on the 2001 census figure of 7,978). The town lays at the foot of the lovely Chiltern Hills and can be accessed via the A4010 which runs between Stoke Mandeville and West Wycombe.

When the Domesday Book was written in 1086, the town was just known as Risborough and was a royal manor (formerly held by King Harold). The name is derived from the old English which means something like "brushwood covered hills" or "scrub covered hills". The name was changed to Princes Risborough after it was held by Edward the Black Prince in 1344. This area was obviously settled a long time before this and possibly grew as a stop off point for anyone travelling between the River Thames and the Icknield Way, due to its lying in a wide opening in the Chiltern Hills.

Princes Risborough became a market town in 1523 when it was issued a royal charter by Henry 8th, this allowed the town to put on a market each (held on Thursdays) and 2 annual fairs (which are still held currently in May and October).

Princes Risborough today is a vibrant little town, although the centre and High St has been more laid back ever since the building of the "by-pass" New Road in the late 1980's.
