Notes on Church:
The church stands above Great Missenden, with the bypass slicing through the hillside just below it. It has evolved with a mixture of work in the Decorated and Perpendicular styles, later being restored by John Oldrid Scott around 1900.

Introduction to Stained Glass:We show 7 windows, including 2 good ones in the Chancel by William Wailes. 2 others are from the 20th century, and an unusual interior screen of 2006 by Nicholas Mynheer.
