Seer Green

The village is situated amid the leafiest lanes in south Bucks, but on a map made in Norman times it is shown as a hamlet called 'Sere'.
Legend says that Merlin, King Arthur's seer, rested here on his journeys to and from Camelot. There is a well in the village which  still bears his name, and it was here that the villagers came to consult him about the future - hence the name 'Seer Green'.
