Encyclopedia > Bradenham, Buckinghamshire

Bradenham is a village in Buckinghamshire, England. It is located near Saunderton, on the main road between Princes Risborough and High Wycombe.

The village name is Anglo Saxon and means 'broad enclosure', referring to the fact that the village sits in a broad valley among the surrounding Chiltern Hills. In the Domesday Book of 1086, the village was recorded as Bradeham.

Bradenham is the location of a grand manor, which in the 13th century was a property belonging to the Earl of Warwick. The house was fit for royalty, as in 1566 Queen Elizabeth I was entertained here.

In the Victorian era, the house was turned into a boarding school for local young gentlemen. Today it is a youth hostel.

A nuclear bunker was built by RAF Strike Command on this National Trust land between 1983 and 1985 in spite of opposition, including from a Peace camp.

The whole village of Bradenham is owned by the National Trust.
