BLEDLOW with BLEDLOW RIDGE.
Bledlow is an interesting village and parish in the hundred of Aylesbury, union of Wyoombe, 3 miles S.W. from Princes Risborongh, and 5 1/2 E.S.E. of Thame. The ancient church, dedicated to the Holy Trinity, is seated on the edge of a Precipitous cliff, above a beautiful and extraordinary ravine, overhung by old trees and ivy, into which several springs fall, and uniting constitute a small crystal lake, called the Lyde. This lake appears to undermine the cliff, which gave rise to an old prophecy of Mother Shipton :
"They who live and do abide,
Shall see Bledlow church fall into the Lyde;
And they who live and do remain
Shall see the same built up again."
The living is a vicarage, in the archdeaconry of Buckingham, valued in the King's books at 16 9s. 7d., and endowed with 400 private benefaction, and 200 royal bounty. The present income is about 300 per annum. The benefice is in the patronage of Lord Carrington, and incumbency of the Rev. William Stephens, M.A. There is a Chapel of Ease in the hamlet of Bledlow Ridge. The Wesleyans have a Chapel at Bledlow, and also one at Bledlow Ridge. The parish comprises an area of 4130 acres, with a population in 1861 of 1189.
