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.
