Pictures of Turville
a Picturesque Village in the county of Buckinghamshire
Turville is the quintessential English village with a charm reminiscent of a world long lost. It occupies a densely wooded valley surrounded by rural farmland.
The best way to explore the village is on foot, this way you get to soak up the peaceful atmosphere and see at close quarters some of the properties included in the T.V. shows. Not to be missed is the Bull and Butcher pub which was renamed The Chalk and Gown for an episode of Midsomer Murders. There is a wide variety of cottage and house styles to be enjoyed, of particular attraction is the row of foliage clad cottages with quaint dormer windows lying close to the delightful village green.
St.Mary's Church is a quaint church building, with a short stubby church tower. It lies in a beautiful tree lined churchyard surrounded by ancient graves and tombstones.
The countryside surrounding Turville is full of interest for nature lovers with lovely autumnal walks, and a springtime aglow with early daffodils. The area has a wealth of bird habitats, thus attracting birders.
Turville can be found between Stokenchurch and Wallingford, it is just a short distance from Stonor Park and within easy reach of the Ridgeway Path.
