St. Lawrence Church

West Wycombe Hill, above West Wycombe Village, is surmounted by an Iron Age hillfort, which shares space with the largely-13th century St Lawrence Church. The church is topped with an enormous "Golden Ball", large enough to hold 6 people. It was created by Sir Francis Dashwood. The interior of the church is remarkable; it was created to emulate an Egyptian temple with Corinthian columns, marble floors, and richly decorated ceilings and walls.


The Mauseleum

The Dashwood Mausoleum houses the urns that contain the ashes of the Dashwood family.
