Visit Winslow and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Winslow, a market town in Buckinghamshire, has a population of about 15,000.
The town's name can be traced back to the 8th century when it was "Wineshlauu" meaning "Wine's Mound". In 1086 it was noted in the Domesday Book as "Weneslai".
Winslow Hall, one of the finest buildings in Buckinghamshire on the main road from Aylesbury, was designed by Sir Christopher Wren round about 1700, 25 years after St Paul's Cathedral in London. Though smaller than some other local mansions, it is nonetheless magnificently designed.
A little Baptist Chapel, called Keech's Meeting House, can still be seen remaining almost unchanged for 300 years. Although Winslow's population is expanding today, it has still kept its rural charm and quaintness. The 11th century parish church in High Street is dedicated to St Laurence.
The town formerly had a railway station. It is now closed although the track remains in place.
The Whaddon Chase foxhounds traditionally meet in the Town Square at Winslow every Boxing Day to the tune of the Brass Band from the nearby village of Great Horwood.
