Buckinghamshire is a traditional county in the Home Counties. It contains the large towns of Aylesbury, High Wycombe, Milton Keynes and Slough as well as the smaller Amersham, Beaconsfield, Buckingham, Chesham, Marlow, Princes Risborough and Wendover. Although the county is named after Buckingham, the county council has always been based in Aylesbury.

Geography & Economy

Pinewood Studios

The county is largely rural, with the majority of the population living in the New Town of Milton Keynes or the London commuter belt in the south; the county contains the Prime Minister's country seat of Chequers. The southern border of the county is on the River Thames, after which it heads north across the Chilterns to the Vale of Aylesbury and the valley of the Great Ouse. The WWII codebreaking site of Bletchley Park lies in the north of the county, whilst other grand houses include Cliveden, home of the Astors, and Waddesdon, home of the Rothschilds.

The Chilterns area was traditionally more industrial: furniture, paper, boots, brushes, lace, linen and, of course, chalk dug from pits. Aylesbury Vale was traditionally more pastoral, with cows being grazed. As such, it is a county of two halves - one chalk, the other cheese. This continues to this day, with the south of the county being economically linked to the capital and the Thames Valley, and the north of the county (especially Milton Keynes) being integrated into the emerging 'South Midlands'/'Varsity Arc' economy.

Roads

The A5 in Milton Keynes

Due to its proximity to London and shape, the county is in 3 numbering 'zones' for A and B roads (3, 4 and 5), and several other major routes out of London pass through the county such as the M1, M4, M40 and A41.

Most non-trunk roads within the traditional county are maintained by Buckinghamshire County Council and the Unitary Authorities of Slough in the south and Milton Keynes in the north, though a small number of roads in the south are maintained by Windsor & Maidenhead.
