About Long Crendon Courthouse

Long Crendon is a beautiful Buckinghamshire village which is possibly best know for its stunning 15th century Courthouse, given by Henry VIII to Catherine of Aragon. The building is long and low with timber-framing and a russet tiled roof. It is an extremely eye catching building, with an upper story overhanging the lower five bays. Four of these form one large room with a magnificent timbered roof, this is accessible from the main entrance via steep steps

Manorial Courts were held here from the reign of Henry V to the time of Queen Victoria, it is further believed the house was once used as a wool store. Whatever, it is a most delightful building with a lower floor which was once the village poorhouse.

The house is now in the care of the National Trust who let out the lower floor as a flat. Visitors may visit the interesting upper story.
