The Chiltern Hills at Great Missenden

About

A large and attractive village  in the Misbourne Valley in the Chiltern Hills with a narrow, curving High Street of half-timbered and Georgian houses, shops, inns and a 14th c. church. 

The 12th c. abbey is now used for conferences and courses. Author Roald Dahl lived at Gt Missenden and wrote many of his best-loved children's books here. The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre is located in the High Street. The Museum, aimed at 6 to 12 year olds, features three interactive galleries. Boy gallery looks at Roald Dahl's school days while Solo gallery houses his original Writing Hut.
