Princes Risborough a Brief Guide: Princes Risborough is a small market town located in the county of Buckinghamshire (Bucks), England, it sits about 8 miles north-west of High Wycombe and approximately nine miles south of the county town, Aylesbury. In 2011, Princes Risborough had a population of 8,101 (a rise on the 2001 figure of 7,978). The town sits at the foot of the beautiful Chiltern Hills and can be accessed via the A4010 which runs between West Wycombe and Stoke Mandeville.

When the Domesday Book was put together in 1086, the town was simply known as Risborough and was a royal manor (prior to the conquest controlled by King Harold). The name comes 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. The area was obviously inhabited a long time before this and in all probability developed as a link for those travelling between the River Thames and the Icknield Way, due to its lying in a broad gap in the Chiltern Hills.

Princes Risborough became a market town in 1523 when it was issued a royal charter by Henry VIII, this allowed the town to hold a market weekly (on Thursdays) and 2 annual fairs (which are still held at present in October and May).

Today Princes Risborough is a vibrant little town, though the centre and High St has been somewhat less busy since the completion of the "by-pass" New Road in the late 1980's.
