Knotty Green

Adjacent to Forty Green and previously known as 'Naughty Green' this village lies along the main road between Beaconsfield and Penn in Chiltern District.
Just off the main road there is a charming cricket pitch with a small recreation area adjoining for the youngsters and, in one corner, an old dew pond now fenced off, which is known to have been used for sheep dipping and reputed to have been in existence for 400 years.

Opposite the cricket pitch stands Hutchins Barn — a 16th century timbered house with a minstrels gallery which, over the years has been modernised. Eghams Farm, built in Tudor times, is a private residence and stands on a path leading to Hogback Wood.

Baylins Farm retains much of its old character with flagstone floors and inglenook fireplaces, low ceilings and wooden beams.

Knotty Green is in Penn Parish and has many large houses standing in their own grounds with two large housing estates providing an overspill for Beaconsfield.
