Mill End Hambleden Conservation Area

Mill End is a small conservation area focused on a group comprising the manor house, farm buildings and a mill on the river Thames, mid way between Marlow and Henley. It is also the location of Hambleden Lock., although this is located on the Berkshire side of the river. The main group of buildings clusters close to the road junction at the foot of the Hambleden Valley, in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The conservation area was designated in 1982 and extended in 1991.

Yewden Manor, a 16th century many gabled house, now converted into four dwellings, is the centrepiece of the hamlet. To the north lie associated buildings of Yewden Home farm, all of mellow brick. Across the road another farm group, Mill End farm, with listed farmhouse and barns. Groups of estate workers cottages line the main road. South of the road, close to Yewden Manor, lies the white weatherboarded mill building, now converted to housing, within a riverside environment.
