West Wycombe conservation area

This conservation area character survey describes the main features of the special architectural and historic interest which justifies the designation of West Wycombe as a conservation area.

West Wycombe is one of the most attractive and historically important conservation areas and historic landscapes in the County. It is a perfectly preserved microcosm of a traditional English rural idyll, albeit carefully planned and designed by the Dashwood family in the 18th century. South of the village lies West Wycombe Park, including the Palladian mansion and registered landscape. The historic parkland is Grade I, of exceptional historic interest. The house, church and mausoleum, the latter two raised high above the valley floor within the Iron Age Hillfort of West Wycombe Hill, are Grade I buildings. In the valley below, the medieval village, where nearly every building is of historic interest, lies on the main A40 Wycombe to Oxford Road.
