The 18th Century church with its golden ball is a well-known landmark, visible for many miles due its hilltop location, dominating the village. The church was created by Sir Francis Dashwood. The hill is known as West Wycombe Hill and was an Iron Age hill fort. Also situated on the hill is the Dashwood Mausoleum.
The village of West Wycombe is home to West Wycombe Park, a stately home accompanied by 5000 acres of land which was built upon in the mid 18th century by Sir Francis Dashwood, founder of the Dilettanti Society and co-founder of the Hellfire Club.
