Ashendon

Ashendon, which includes the tiny hamlets of Upper and Lower Pollicott, is a small, friendly village which has changed relatively little in living memory. Built high on a ridge, it has magnificent views across the Vale of Aylesbury, particularly from the grounds of the 12th century church. The stone and brick cottages, some even thatched, convey the impression of an age old settlement, and indeed the 'place of ash trees on the hill' appears to have been of some importance in Saxon times.
