Amersham is a market town and civil parish within the Chiltern district in Buckinghamshire, England, 27miles north west of London, in the Chiltern Hills. It is part of the London commuter belt. Amersham is 15miles from Aylesbury and 13miles from High Wycombe.There are two distinct areas: Old Amersham, set in the valley of the River Misbourne, which contains the 13th century parish church of St. Mary's and several old pubs and coaching inns; and Amersham-on-the-Hill, which grew rapidly around the railway station in the early part of the 20th century.HistoryRecords date back to pre-Anglo-Saxon times, when it was known as Agmodesham, and by the time that the Domesday Book was written around 1086 it had become known as Elmodesham. The Domesday entry is as follows:Geoffrey de Mandeville holds Amersham. It answers for hides. Land for 16 ploughs; in lordship 2 hides; 3 ploughs there. 14 villagers with 4 smallholders have 9 ploughs; a further 4 possible. 7 slaves; meadow for 16 ploughs; woodland 400 pigs. The total value is and was £9; before 1066 £16. Queen Edith held this manor. Queen Edith was the wife of Edward the Confessor and sister of king Harold, and after her death in 1075 the land passed to William the Conqueror who granted it to Geoffrey de Mandeville.Customize your holiday with our United Kingdom vacation planner to create an adventure that suits you.
