|Route outline (key)|
The MC1 heads north west out of Great Missenden along Rignall Road, ending at the district boundary with the C63 continuing beyond.
Beginning at a fork junction on the old A413 (now MC60 south of the junction) just north of Great Missenden village centre, the MC1 is signed for Butlers Cross and Princes Risborough (5 and 6 miles away respectively). Rignall Road passes between some houses, but with only two driveways, for 150 yards, before curving sharply and crossing the railway on a weak bridge. The narrow S2 widens west of the railway, and the road heads west with houses fronting it on the north side and side turns on the south side. Before long, the road leaves Great Missenden and gains a 40mph speed limit, as there remains properties by the road - albeit more rural in design and spacing.
Eventually the trees by the road, and the hedges lining it, get lower, allowing a vista of the wide valley the road sits at the bottom of. However, soon the MC1 meets Kings Lane, narrows again (becoming barely wide enough to have a centre line), and becomes the C63 at some point between here and Hotley Bottom Lane. The C63 continues westwards to Princes Risborough and beyond.
