Visit Denham and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Denham, Buckinghamshire. This picturesque village in wooded countryside off the A40 has many houses and brick and timbered cottages of interest. One of these, Old Cottage, a half-timbered Tudor building, has a fascinating unevenly-shaped front. There are several old inns and a tiny 1820 Wesleyan chapel.
The River Colne flows through the grounds of Denham Place which is at the end of the street, behind a high brick wall. It was built in Restoration times and beneath its high-pitched roof can be seen dormer windows. Captain Cook stayed here, as did Lucien and Joseph Bonaparte.
The Parish Church of St Mary, surrounded by limes, beeches and cypress trees, is of the 15th century. A 500-year-old wall painting of Judgment Day adorns the walls in which can be seen the figure of an archangel sounding the Last Trump. Mounted on slender round pillars is the 13th-century font, the church's oldest possession. On each of the eight sides of the bowl are two pointed arches. There are many brasses of interest on the floor before the altar. The table tomb shows the figures of Sir Edmund Peckham and his wife. Sir Edmund was Master of the Mint to Henry VI.
