Retirement Properties in Buckinghamshire

Lane End : The name ‘Framers Court‘ commemorates a small Victorian chair makers‘ workshop that stood on part of the land. For two centuries Lane End was associated with the chair making industry in High Wycombe and at one time chairs were produced at the rate of 4700 per day. High Wycombe itself is mentioned as Wicumbe in Domesday and had six mills. The name derives from 'at the dwellings or settlements' and the river-name 'Wye' is likely to be a 'back-formation' from the place-name. The town became famous for making furniture due to the abundance of beech trees growing on the Chilterns and the Wycombe Museum in Priory Avenue has many fine chairs.

High Wycombe has some good shopping facilities with many specialist shops and most national stores represented including a large Asda Superstore. Fitness enthusiasts are pleased to have Marlow hill nearby and thespians enjoy the several festivals that take place in the town including the Wycombe Arts Festival and other theatre. The Wycombe Show takes place in September. There are several places of interest nearby and West Wycombe Park has country walks, recreation areas and a Palladian Mansion with fine landscaped gardens. Marlow Hill gives a panoramic view of the area stretching into the Vale of Aylesbury to the west and woodland to the east. Our three developments here all have easy access to shops and other amenities. Click on an estate below to find out more:
