    6 Quirky Facts About High Wycombe

    1. Through the Mill
      High Wycombe has a history of mills. As early as the 11th century there were 20 corn mills in the area as recorded in the Domesday Book. By 1500 this had mostly become woollen mills, involved in making cloth for clothing. In the 1600’s times had changed again and paper mills had become the major source of local employment, but working conditions were tough. In 1830 papermill workers rioted as new machines were brought in that meant job losses. The riot was quashed and many of the rioters were transported to penal colonies such as Van Diemen’s Land (now called Tasmania), Australia.
    2. Royal Academy
      In 1799 Lieutenant Colonel Gaspard Le Marchant called a meeting in the Antelope Inn where he founded a school for army officers which became the Royal Military Academy. The school continued to operate at the Inn before it moved to a new site in Farnham, Surrey.
    3. Scholars
      Other ex-pupils that attended the two local grammar schools (John Hampden Grammar School and the Royal Grammar School) include; TS Eliot, Jimmy Carr, Matt Dawson, Fergus Walsh, Ian Dury, Terry Pratchett, Heston Blumenthal, Howard Jones and Robin Day.
    4. Hell Raising
      The infamous Hellfire Club met at caves close to High Wycombe. The group (including politicians and influential figures) held quasi-religious rites, orgies and wild parties, organised by Sir Francis Dashwood who was famed for drinking, partying and chasing women. Dashwood later went on to become Chancellor of the Exchequer, somewhat ironically, he levied a tax on cider which led to national riots.
    5. Chair Raising
      High Wycombe has a proud history of making fine furniture. It also has a weird history of building archways our of chairs (!?!). The first archway was built to mark the arrival of Queen Victoria to Benjamin Disraeli at his home. In 1884, 400 towering chairs heralded a visit from the Prince of Wales. The tradition continues and a chair archway was constructed as part of the millennium celebrations.
    6. Weighty Matters
      High Wycombe has another unique and equally quirky tradition dating to the 1800’s. A weigh-in for the outgoing mayor and councillors. After being weighed, the results are called out to the assembled crowd, to confirm if the council have put on weight at the taxpayers’ expense. If they’ve gained weight they are jeered, if they’ve lost weight the crowd cheers.
