Great Missenden is a large village at the head of the River Misbourne valley in the Chiltern Hills, Buckinghamshire. This is an exceptionally charming village, especially worth a visit in the festive season when it is illuminated with white lights lining the narrow but lengthy High Street of half timbered and Georgian shops, looked over by the 14th century parish church of St Peter and St Paul. The village was on a coaching route, so had many inns and was a prosperous place but after the railway revolution and the arrival of the London Underground Metropolitan Line in 1892, there was little passing trade. Some inns remain today in this now commuter village, home to many pubs and a good range of restaurants. Chiltern Railways runs through here, offering a regular hourly service into London Marylebone. Accommodation here is self-catering or B&B at Lower Bassibones Farm or Forge House; for hotels Amersham or High Wycombe are the closest. Missenden Abbey (an Augustrinian monastry founded in 1133) is a conference centre. A famous resident of Great Missenden was childrens author Roald Dahl, until he passed on in 1990. In 2005 The Roald Dahl and Story Centre in the High Street opened to honour his work. The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday and also offers a self-guided village trail.
