About Princes Risborough: Princes Risborough is a smallish market town positioned in the county of Buckinghamshire, England, it stands roughly eight miles north-west of High Wycombe and around 9 miles south of the county town, Aylesbury. In the 2011 census, Princes Risborough had 8,101 residents (a modest rise on the 2001 census figure of 7,978). The town is placed at the foot of the lovely Chiltern Hills and can be accessed via the A4010 which runs between Stoke Mandeville and West Wycombe.

At the time of the Domesday Book in 1086, the town was known simply as Risborough and was a royal manor (formerly controlled by King Harold). The name "Risborough" hails from the old English which means something like "scrub covered hills" or "brushwood covered hills". It changed its name to Princes Risborough when the manor was held by Edward the Black Prince in 1344. This area was obviously populated a long time before this and in all probability evolved as a resting place for anyone travelling between the River Thames and the Icknield Way, with it lying favourably in a wide 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 it to hold a market each (each Thursday) and 2 annual fairs (still being held presently in October and May).

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