Princes Risborough a Brief Guide: Princes Risborough is a small market town positioned in the county of Buckinghamshire, England, UK, it is placed approximately 8 miles north-west of High Wycombe and around nine miles to the south of the county town, Aylesbury. In 2011, Princes Risborough had 8,101 residents (a modest rise on the 2001 census figure of 7,978). The town lays at the foot of the picturesque Chiltern Hills and can be accessed via the A4010 which runs between West Wycombe and Stoke Mandeville.

When the Domesday Book was compiled in 1086, the town was known simply as Risborough and was a royal manor (prior to the conquest controlled by King Harold). Its name derives from the old English meaning more or less "brushwood covered hills" or "scrub covered hills". It became Princes Risborough after it was held by Edward the Black Prince in 1344. This area was obviously inhabited well before this and in all likelihood developed as a stop off for travellers going between the River Thames and the Icknield Way, due to its lying in a broad opening in the Chiltern Hills.

Princes Risborough has been a market town since 1523 when it was issued a royal charter by Henry 8th, this enabled the town to put on a market each (Thursdays) and two annual fairs (still being held today in October and May).

Today Princes Risborough is a busy little town, though the centre and High Street has been calmer ever since the development of the New Road "by-pass" in the 1980's.
