Out & About

Discover West Wycombe

The village of West Wycombe was once owed by the Dashwood family. It was an important coaching stop on the main road between London and Oxford. At its peak, no fewer than seven inns and alehouses thrived in the tiny village. In 1929 the village was bought by the Royal Society of Arts as part of the Society's ‘Campaign for the Preservation of Ancient Cottages’. The National Trust, has maintained the village ever since. The village features many buildings of architectural value which were built between the 16th and 18th centuries.
