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

When the Domesday Book was written in 1086, the town was called Risborough and was a royal manor (before the conquest controlled by King Harold). Its name comes from the old English which means something like "brushwood covered hills" or "scrub covered hills". It became Princes Risborough when it was held by the Black Prince (Edward) in 1344. The area was without a doubt populated centuries before this and in all probability evolved as a link for anyone travelling between the Icknield Way and the River Thames, 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 hold a weekly market (Thursdays) and two annual fairs (which are still held today in May and October).

Princes Risborough today is a bustling little town, although the High Street and centre has been somewhat less busy ever since the building of the "by-pass" New Road in the 1980's.
