Well End conservation area

Well End is a small but historic conservation area located at the western edge of Bourne End, close to the River Thames. It was designated in 1971 and extended in 1994 to include the wider grounds of Well End Farm. The buildings are a mix of attractive timber framed vernacular and brick cottages, Victorian cottages, and grander houses. These lie close to the roadside in a traditional village pattern.

Well End Farm lies close to the heart of the hamlet, its traditional farmhouse and historic barns enhanced by their open setting. This provides a contrast with the closer knit and more built up form of the rest of the settlement. The whole area is a picturesque enclave on the busy main road that runs between Marlow and Bourne End.
