Great Missenden

 Great Missenden is the second largest parish in the Chiltern district.  It includes the pretty rural villages of Prestwood, Ballinger, Ballinger Common,  South Heath, and parts of Hyde Heath, Hyde End and Little Kingshill.

Great Missenden, at the head of the Misbourne valley, is an attractive small  town with a long curving High Street of half timbered and Georgian shops, a  graciously proportioned Baptist Church and a number of traditional pubs. Church  Street is full of interesting old houses and leads, via a bridge over the  by-pass, to the mainly 14th century Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul.  Missenden Abbey, founded in 1133 as an Augustinian monastery, is now a  residential college offering adult education courses. The town’s modern  facilities include a public library, a private hospital, a supermarket and a  British Rail station linking Aylesbury with London. Great Missenden is bypassed  by the A413 and is situated 30 miles from London.
