If this were one of those really dull and predictable websites, we'd wax lyrical for the next several hundred words about High Wycombe's proud heritage as a chair-making centre. But we're not and High Wycombe has long since lost its chair-making industry. Gone are the days when you could get a job as a 'bodger' in the Chiltern hills and then wander down once a year to sell your chairs in the market place. There are some specialist bespoke furniture makers left in the town but let's dispense with the past and concentrate on the future.

Who could have predicted back in 1995 when the internet arrived in Britain that those small companies on the Cressex industrial estate offering access to this technology would one day be part of the global empire that is the worldwide web. But now High Wycombe - and the wider Wycombe area in this part of Buckinghamshire - is home to a number of IT and digital firms. You'll find them on the many business parks squeezed into the Wye Valley or neighbouring hills: Cressex Business Park, Kignsmead Business Park, Globe Park, St Johns Court and so forth. Balancing the need for employment with the natural beauty of the area has led to a large number of small business parks rather than one giant one similar to Slough.
The village of Naphill, three miles from High Wycombe is the home of Air Command, the UK's strategic command for attack and defence operations around the world. There are about 2,000 people employed at the base including many administrative and support staff. RAF High Wycombe is a 'village' in its own right with its own shops, medical facilities and other services so don't overlook it as a source of employment.
