Princes Risborough, a small, pleasent town nestling in the Chiltern Hills, has seen many changes over the years, especially since the Second World War. In this delightful record, many stories and anecdotes have been gathered from the people who have lived and worked in the town throughout the post-war period. Long-time Risborough residents Mike and Angela Payne have interviewed scores of people about living and working in the town. The book includes untold stories, personal memories and the contributions individuals have made. All this is complemented by over sixty pictures, some previously unseen, from the authors' and local people's private collections. This volume provides a glimpse into how the town has changed and developed, as seen through the eyes of those who know it best. Bringing back nostalgic memories of real life in Buckinghamshire town, this truly is a book for the people by the people.
