Bradshaw’s Guide

Maidenhead to Wycombe and Oxford

Wycombe and Thame Branch

From Maidenhead we pass Taplow, Cookham, Marlow Road, Woburn Green, and Loudwater, stations of no great importance, and arrive at

High Wycombe

Wycombe is a borough in Buckinghamshire on the Wyck. In the vicinity are many corn and paper mills.

The line continues hence through West Wycombe, the old market town of Princes Risborough, from whence there is a continuation of the line to Aylesbury. Leaving Princes Risborough, the line takes a westerly curve through Bledlow, and, immediately leaving the county of Bucks, enters that of Oxford, and very soon after arrives at

Thame, a small market town, consisting of one long street. The church is very old, and built in the form of a cross, has a fine tower, and its windows of stained glass.

Wheatley and Littlemore, the latter of which has a very considerable pile of buildings used as a Pauper Lunatic Asylum.


Oxford is the capital of the rich midland county of the same name, and one of the most ancient cities of England.
