About Bledlow

This is one of Buckinghamshire most attractive villages. Anyone visiting the area could be forgiven for thinking they had seen it somewhere before because the village has been the setting for scenes in the T.V. drama Midsommer Murders. Take a close look at the Church of The Holy Trinity - in one episode this became St.Michael's church.

Both the interior and exterior of Holy Trinity are very beautiful. It is largely built of Flint and has parts dating back to the 13th century, looking around it is easy to see why it was chosen for television, for here there are many ancient treasures including monuments and superb stained glass.

Bledlow lies amidst the meadows stretching across the Tame Valley close to the northern spur of the Chiltern Hills. It is a large village with a superb mixture of properties ranging from pretty cottages to the splendid homes occupied by the rich and famous. Its glorious location with views over rolling countryside is the main attraction, for other than this the village boasts only a local store, garage, village hall and public house.

For centuries this was a famous milling area, milling ceased during the early years of the 20th century with some of the regions mills being demolished to make way for new housing. However, the few that remained have been mostly converted into luxury homes, their former character adding a little bit of sparkle and interest.

The famous Ridgeway Path and the Steam trains of the Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway run through the village.
