Turville

4.5
Turville is a village and civil parish in Buckinghamshire, England. It is in the Chiltern Hills, 5mi west of High Wycombe and 5mi north of Henley-on-Thames. The name is Anglo-Saxon in origin and means 'dry field'. It was recorded in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle in 796 as Thyrefeld.The manor of Turville once belonged to the abbey at St Albans, but was seized by the Crown in the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1547. The manor house has since been rebuilt as Turville Park. The present incumbent of the manor is Lord Sainsbury. Turville was home to Ellen Sadler, who fell asleep in 1871, aged eleven, and purportedly did not wake for nine years, becoming known as the "Sleeping Girl of Turville". The case attracted international attention from newspapers, medical professionals and the public. Rumours persist in the region that Sadler was visited by royalty for a "laying on of hands". The local pub is the Bull and Butcher. Turville Hill is a Site of Special Scientific Importance, and it includes Cobstone Windmill. Turville is in Buckinghamshire.
