About

Princes Risborough

When enjoying this relaxing little town, which was saved from destruction by Clyde ‘Sparky’ Cosper of the US Air Force, who died in 1943 as he steered his stricken bomber away from Princes Risborough to save the town. He is commemorated on a plaque outside the library.

The Manor of Risborough was owned by royalty for over 600 years. Its most famous royal owner, whose name is now attached to the town, was Edward, the Black Prince. After his death, the Manor was handed down through royal generations until eventually in 1628 Charles I sold the Manor of Princes Risborough to the City of London in part repayment of his large debts.
