Speen village, Buckinghamshire
Speen is a small, vibrant village perched “on top of the Chilterns”. It enjoys a strong village community spirit and is noted for its typical Buckinghamshire brick-and-flint architecture as well as the famous The Horse Trust’s Home of Rest for Horses which is located nearby.
The village name is Anglo Saxon in origin, and means 'wood chips'. This refers to the location of the hamlet in the Chiltern Forest where trees are likely to be felled fairly regularly.
The nearby Home of Rest for Horses is the place where some horses in royal or military service are retired to when they get too old or become injured. Many of the horses that were injured when the IRA bombed the Royal Horse Guards in the early 1980s were brought here (Sefton being the most famous), and the stables have become a popular tourist attraction for animal lovers.
