Description of Ellesborough from J. J. Sheahan, 1861.  

Ellesborough

Ellesborough is beautiful. The church of St Peter and St Paul, rising on its own hillock from the flat vale of Aylesbury, is set against a backcloth of hills. Beacon Hill and Coombe Hill rise above it. The focal point on the latter, the South African War Memorial, is visible for many miles.
