High Wycombe: good place to live

Wycombe is a great place to live if you don’t drive. No traffic jams or parking problems. If you live in Abercromby Road, for example, it’s a short walk along Desborough Road to the town centre, with its Eden shopping Mall, library, Hospital. If you are disabled, there are many facilities, including https://www.shopmobilityhighwycombe.co.uk/ You’ll pass the Bus Station, which can start you on your way to anywhere in the world: trains to London and Birmingham; bus 104 to Heathrow airport. Wycombe is surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or AONB.

But then there are country walks a half-mile from the town centre. See photos below:

Footpaths there and back. By the time I reached Wycombe High, the girls’ grammar school, the sky was darkening so I went back via Marlow Hill along with many pupils in twos and threes. Then back home via the Eden Centre

 I return down Marlow Hill and go through its entrance to Wycombe Hospital. Here’s someone waiting to be let into the Infection Control Dept, where Karleen worked for many years
