Burnham, considered still to be a village by many of its residents, has a population of 12,500. In South Buckinghamshire it lies north of the River Thames, sitting on the border with Berkshire, between the towns of Maidenhead and Slough. The town is best regarded as being part of Slough due to urban development encroaching, although it has retained some of its unique character. Burnham was once an important town. The road from London to Bath passed through and, as a result, in 1271, the town received a Royal charter to hold a market and an annual fair. However, when the bridge crossing the Thames in Maidenhead opened the main road was diverted away from Burnham, which fell into relative decay. The market was then transferred to Maidenhead. Owing to its proximity to Pinewood Film & TV Studios, Burnham and surrounding areas can be spotted in numerous films, notably a number of the Carry On films from the 1960s and 70s. There are 2 18-hole golf courses in Burnham, along with grand hotels, The Grovefield which is Edwardian and set in 7 acres and the Georgian hotel Burnham Beeches. The parish church, St Peters, dates in part from the twelfth century but has been substantially expanded, refurbished and altered, with major restorations
