Wendover lies at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, in Buckinghamshire, and at the head of the valley which here cuts the Hills and runs, with the little Iix er Mis bourne as its centre, through Missenden, Amersham, and the Chalfonts. Lo1d Av chury, in his Swnmy of England, speaks of these gaps in the Chilterns as very impressive, and of the Wendover gap as 300 feet deep, the summit of the pass being 503 feet above the sea, while the ridge on either side rises to 700 and 800 He adds that cithe ?oors of the valleys are occupied by unmistakable river gravels, and this is well illustrated in the case of Wendover, a gravel pit of some size being worked on the east of the read about the summit of the gap.
