About The Village

Little Kingshill is a small village in the parish of Little Missenden respectively in Buckinghamshire, England, located in the Chiltern Hills, about five miles west of Amersham and two and a half miles south of Great Missenden.

The hamlet name 'Kingshill' is fairly self explanatory, meaning a hill in possession of the king. Local folklore suggests it was King John who provided the name. The affix 'Little' was added later to differentiate between Little Kingshill and Great Kingshill, our nearest neighbour.  There is some evidence that Little Kingshill was once known as Pirenore.

Little Kingshill has two pubs: the Full Moon and The Prince of Wales. Both are friendly village pubs with a good atmosphere. The Prince of Wales contains a younger clientele where the younger generation of the village congregate at the weekends.

In keeping with the area, Little Kingshill boasts very good primary schools.
