In the middle ages the area was wooded, with oak and ash trees as well as the native beech. Fields were gradually cleared from the woodland around the village with crop rotation depending on individual fields.

When the common was enclosed in 1861, under the General Inclosure Acts, its use was reserved for the annual pleasure and horse fair on 10 and 11 July, to which great droves of Welsh ponies and Irish horses were formerly brought. In the latter decades of the nineteenth century New Road was laid out, allotments for 'the labouring poor' were created as was Marlow Road cemetery. A Board School was opened on the site of what is now Old School Close.

Our new opening hours for viewing as of the 7th April are as follows:

In 1824 the gradient of the road from Stokenchurch to Aston Rowant was made far less by diverting its route to the west, following the line of what is now the A40. The presence of a road system meant that, in addition to firewood, locally built furniture could now be shipped direct to London. In the nineteenth century chair making and lace making were the local industries.

The guide to the parish church, on sale in the church in the late 1970s (but no publishing information); mentions a battle fought between the locals and Danes on nearby Beacon Hill in the year 914AD. It is said that where juniper grows blood has been spilt - there is certainly lots of juniper on Beacon Hill.

Now, in the early years of the twenty-first century, the population has risen to around 5000. Despite this growth an abundance of green spaces still exists both within and around the village.

Since 2011, Garsington Opera, an annual open air summer opera festival is held just across the M40 at Wormsley Park.

Group bookings are also welcomed and our professional events team are available to discuss your requirements and to make reservations.

By the middle of the eighteenth century, Stokenchurch, at the highest part of the Chilterns became a natural place to change the horses of stage coaches after the long haul up from High Wycombe and the much steeper pitch up Aston Hill. This in turn led to the establishment of many of the pubs and inns in the village.

Stokenchurch first appears in manorial records in the thirteenth century. In 1279 the manor of Aston Rowant included the hamlet of Stokenchurch. The name is believed to have been derived from Anglo Saxon meaning 'church in the woods'. Certainly parts of the Parish Church of St. Peter and St. Paul date from the twelfth century.

On Sunday 5th June, our Chair Joyce Marriott and a small group of kind volunteers ran and judged the Dog Show at the Horses, Hounds and Heroes event at The Horses Trust in Speen.

Fathers Day at The Kings Eating House & Hotel.

Sadly not all of our dogs are suitable to be adopted, often due to experiences in their past, so they live with us at the Rescue.  You can help by sponsoring ones of these dogs.

At 700 feet it is one of the highest villages on the recently designated 'Chiltern Way'. It boasts one of the densest populations of red kites in Europe. As a result the area attracts walkers, countryside lovers and wild life enthusiasts from far and wide.

In 1989, "the centre of the wider village, which is characterised by large areas of common to both sides of the main road" was designated a conservation area.[7]

Stokenchurch's Methodist chapel, built 1893-96, possibly by T.Colbourne of Swindon, is one of the most elaborate in Buckinghamshire.[9]

The Kings Hotel is your ideal choice for accommodation in the High Wycombe and Marlow area. As well as offering the very best wedding venue, good food, conference and meeting rooms we also supply free WiFi in bedrooms and public areas and all rooms have 100+ sky channels for our guests enjoyment.

All of our dogs are special but sometimes a dog may get over-looked for adoption and will be with us for a while longer.  Take a look at our Dog Of The Month to see a special dog looking for a new home.

The M40 runs through the centre of the parish, making London, Oxford and the Midlands very accessible.

Stokenchurch's main landmark is the King's Hotel (formerly the King's Arms Hotel), where King Charles II is reputed[weasel words] to have stayed with his mistress in the 17th century. The front of the hotel is 20th century.[8]

For centuries the existence of the villagers remained unchanged. The main source of fuel in the towns and cities was wood and vast quantities of faggots - bundles of twiggy wood for burning - were shipped down the Thames to London. This was used for domestic purposes and for firing furnaces, brick and glassmaking.

The Kings Hotel & Eating House are offering a great new menu for you to try this Bank Holiday weekend!

The original road is now a bridleway, called Colliers Lane (in original local dialect Coiyers Lane); the current road having been constructed in 1824. It was the use of the village as a stopping point that led to many of the pubs and inns being established.
