Cookham is a historic village and civil parish on the River Thames in the north-easternmost corner of Berkshire in England. It is notable as the home of the artist Stanley Spencer. It is 3.5mi north of Maidenhead on the county boundary with Buckinghamshire and sits opposite the neighbouring village of Bourne End. Cookham forms the southernmost, and most rural part of the High Wycombe Urban Area. Cookham, and its adjoining villages of Cookham Rise and Cookham Dean (locally referred to as 'The Cookhams') have a combined population of 5,519 increasing to 5,779 at the 2011 Census. In 2011 The Daily Telegraph deemed Cookham Britain's second richest village.GeographyThe parish includes three villages: Cookham Village – the centre of the original village, with a high street that has changed little in appearance over the centuries. Cookham Dean – the most rural village in the parish. Cookham Rise – the area in the middle that grew up around the railway station. The village's neighbours are Maidenhead to the south, Bourne End to the north, Marlow and Bisham to the west and Taplow to the east.
