St Peter and St Pauls is Grade I listed building located on the “wrong side” of the Missenden by-pass. Access is via Church Lane. It was originally part of the large medieval abbey complex until the Henrician Reformation when it became the parish church. The much loved author, Roald Dahl, lived in the village and is buried in the church yard.

The parish of St Peter and St Pauls Great Missenden administers the small and very ancient church at Little Hampden. Until 1985 this church was administered as part the Great Hampden parish.
