Bourne End & Wooburns
Bourne End is a village situated near the Bucks-Berks border, close to where the River Wye empties into the River Thames. It is a popular residential location for commuters because of its excellent road connections to the M4 and M40 motorways, as well as rail connections to London via Maidenhead.
Traditionally, Bourne End’s riverside location dictated much of the industry in the surrounding area, with many local workers employed by four mills, all of which were closed by the late-20th century. Two wharves along the River Thames also provided considerable employment; many other residents around Bourne End were agricultural workers. Nowadays the river is a source of tourism and leisure; the local sailing club host a popular week-long regatta during the summer.
The Wooburns are a collection of villages near the River Thames between Beaconsfield and Marlow, situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Wooburn Manor Park Estate, just outside Wooburn Town, was historically the palace of the Bishop of Lincoln: the moat dug around the palace survives to this day. Like Bourne End, the Wooburns are popular with commuters to the capital, because of their proximity to good rail and road connections as well as the beautiful surrounding countryside.
