The local area guide to living in Stokenchurch

The village and civil parish of Stokenchurch lies in the Wycombe district in Buckinghamshire, among the stunning Chiltern Hills – which were designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1965. In a rather fitting fashion for an area so renowned for its picturesque landscapes, the region surrounding Stokenchurch has become something of a birdwatcher’s paradise. Budding ornithologists will feel right at home here and if they are lucky, they might even be able to catch a glimpse of the red kite. These magnificent birds of prey were hunted almost to the point of extinction by Victorian gamekeepers, but have since seen something of a resurgence. As a result, Stokenchurch is now one of the best places in England to view these birds.

Information about the local residents

According to the Census of 2011, there are currently 4,861 people living in Stokenchurch. These residents are split into 2,010 households – of which the majority live in unshared detached or semi-detached homes.

Owing to the village’s ease of access to both London and Birmingham, Stokenchurch has become a popular place to live – with a number of residents making the journey to both of these cities for work. The largest employment sector in Stokenchurch is the wholesale and retail trade industry. Currently, this industry accounts for roughly 18% of working age people in the village.

Nearby schools

Parents of primary level children will no doubt find the schooling available in Stokenchurch to be an attractive feature of the town. While there is only one primary school in the village – Stokenchurch Primary School – it performs exceptionally well on a national level. There are currently 553 pupils enrolled at the school, and 89% of students achieve Level 4 or above in maths, reading and writing by the age of 11. This figure is 11% higher than the national average. Further adding to the school’s list of strengths is the fact that it was awarded an Ofsted rating of ‘Outstanding’ when the organisation last inspected the school.

Unfortunately, there are no secondary level schools in the Stokenchurch area. As a result, teenage students will most likely find themselves having to travel to nearby High Wycombe in order to attend high school. There are a number of secondary schools operating in this area, most of which are run to a good standard.

Getting around

One of the most attractive features of Stokenchurch is the fact that it lies next to the M40 motorway – making it an easy location from which the cities of London and Birmingham can be reached. Travel times to London and Birmingham are roughly 1 hour and 10 minutes, and 1 hour and 20 minutes respectively.

There are also a number of buses available to provide residents with transport to neighbouring areas such as High Wycombe, Ibstone and Thame. National Express buses are also available to transport locals through to Oxford and Stansted Airport with ease.

The nearest train stations to Stokenchurch are in Saunderton, which is roughly a 15-minute drive away, and High Wycombe. The drive to High Wycombe from Stokenchurch takes around 20 minutes - traffic permitting.

Local shops

There is only one supermarket in Stokenchurch itself, which is a Tesco Express. As a result, residents will most likely find themselves once again making the journey to High Wycombe to complete their weekly food shop. High Wycombe is home to a number of supermarkets, including a Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Lidl.

On top of this, High Wycombe is also the place to go to find popular high street fashion chains such as H&M, Topshop and New Look. The town is also home to the Eden Shopping Centre, which boasts a large number of shops selling everything from fashion to toys and electronics.

Don’t let Stokenchurch’s apparent lack of amenities put you off from relocating there, though, as it pays to remember that High Wycombe is only a short 20-minute drive away!
