All Saints

Called 'The Cathedral of the Fields' this magnificent church stands in an isolated hamlet on a slight hill, so that while it can appear suddenly in distant views, reaching it involves negotiating miles of winding narrow lanes.

St Mary & St Nicholas

In a remote part of northwest Buckinghamshire, this predominantly 13th century church stands almost alone, with only an old gabled stone house and farm buildings for company.

St Leonard

Grade II* listed building, with a 12th century nave and 14th century chancel, with works by Peter Gaspar Scheemakers.
