Alscot

Alscot

Alscot is a charming cul-de-sac hamlet mid way between Longwick and Princes Risborough. It is also the smallest conservation area in the Parish, hiding itself by the Longwick Road. The road crosses a stream, now hardly noticed by drivers hastening to Thame. It is called the ‘foul brook’ in the Charter of 903 and it is interesting to see the traces of the wide ford that an older, muddier road created.
