Another stop in Metro-land: Great Missenden

The Mule is gradually visiting the varied places that comprise Metro-land, as the area along the Metropolitan Railway (now Metropolitan Line on the tube) was marketed in the 1920s.

Our latest trip is to Great Missenden. A large village located in the Chilterns, it is best known for being home to Roald Dahl and there’s now a museum to the man and the characters of his books, making it a popular family destination. The village is full of picturesque, historic buildings, which also makes it worth a wander around with a camera, which is precisely what we did. Take a look at our photos of Great Missenden on Flickr. There’s also a good selection of cafes, pubs and interesting shops.
