SS Peter and Paul Church is one of the most beautiful churches in Buckinghamshire. Set on a hill, it has good views towards the Chilterns. The cache is in church grounds; permission from the vicar when placed, being given.
The earliest reference to the church in the village is 1070, but the present building started to be-built in 1140 and took nearly 400 years to complete! The first recorded vicar took office in 1209. In all, there have been 48 vicars in un-broken succession. Above the south door the unique tympanum is located. The carving shows a magnificent Tree of Life at the centre. A peculiar beast stands on each side of the tree, rearing up to grasp a bit of fruit from the tree branches in its mouth. Inside the church the font has been is regular use for 800 years, and continues to be used for infant baptisms.
