More about this scene


Caption for Waddesdon, Upper Winchendon, The Wilderness 1897: Climbing out of the Vale of Aylesbury northwards onto the Brill-Winchendon Hills, we reach Upper Winchendon, where the Marquess of Wharton built a vast country house around 1700. Demolished in 1758, only the service range survives; it was converted into a house, which is now occupied by the estate manager of the Rothschild land around Waddesdon, Winchendon and Tythrop. Behind is the Norman church where John Wesley, founder of the Methodist movement, preached his first sermon after his ordination.
