Thornborough is a village and also a civil parish within Aylesbury Vale district in Buckinghamshire, England. It is located about two miles east of Buckingham.HistoryThe village name, meaning "hill where thorn trees grow", is Anglo Saxon in origin. It was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Torneberge, Tornburuwe in the 13th century and Thornborowe in the 16th century.An Inclosure Act for Thornborough was passed in 1797.The village has the earthworks of a Roman village on its western border, in between Thornborough Bridge and the main village. Near the bridge on the north side of the road are the Thornborough Mounds, two tumuli in which Roman remains were found in 1839. They are a Scheduled Monument.BuildingsThere is a manor house with associated tithe barns in the centre of the village next to the pond.The village church, St Mary, is one of very few in Britain to have steel bells. The church has been repaired, restored and extended many times with some parts dating back to the 12th century. The tower was built early in the 15th century and the south porch about 1480.The village pub, The Two Brewers, is a thatched building with two bars. It has been run by the same family for over 25 years. A second pub, The Lone Tree, on the outskirts of the village on the A421 closed for refurbishment in 2004 and shortly after re-opening it was severely damaged by fire on 26 November 2007. Abandoned and in serious need of repair, it was delicensed and sold as a private dwelling in 2014, since when the thatched roof has been removed.When using our United Kingdom attractions site to make an itinerary online, Thornborough holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
