The Old Churchyard is the site of the original parish church that collapsed in the 18th century, the church spire actually collapsed twice before residents decided to rebuild the church.

Many chest tombs can be seen in the churchyard along with the vaults of the Bartlett family. The stump of the Market Cross once stood in the churchyard marking the site of the west door of the medieval church. The cross can now be seen in the Old Gaol.

Manor House

From the Churchyard you can also see Manor House. The Manor House is an early Tudor house with its own intriguing history of famous visitors and twisted brick chimney!

Look at the walls of the house and you might spot a plaque dedicated to St Rumbold, the baby saint of Buckingham. It is said that he was born c.650 AD and only lived three days, but performed many miracles during this time, his tomb and shrine are marked by a memorial plaque in the Churchyard.

With thanks to the Centre for Buckinghamshire Studies for the engraving of town, as viewed from a hill, circa 1770.
