Addington and St. Marys
The main reason as to why Buckinghamshire is particularly blessed with an abundance of picturesque and charming towns and villages is because it never developed any major heavy industry.
A couple of miles north west of Windsor lies the tiny hamlet of Addington, where the historic St. Mary's Church can be found. The Church has a 14 th century tower and arcade, several Flemish stained glass windows and an extensive library, which King Henry VIII ordered to be destroyed as part of his attacks on Catholics books during the 16 th century Reformation. The library escaped destruction by being walled up. However, this meant that it remained undiscovered for 300 years when the Church underwent extensive reconstruction. The Church's other claim to fame is that the great British actor, Laurence Olivier sang in its choir; his father was the vicar at the Church.
