“God made the country, and man made the town.”
~William Cowper.

One of Buckinghamshire’s best kept secrets is the pretty village of
Weston Underwood.

Underwood is abundantly full of interesting features connected with
William Cowper, poet, translator of Homer and one of England’s great
letter writers. Cowper moved from Olney to Weston Underwood in November
1786 as a resident guest of the Throckmorton family, and stayed with
them until a few years before his death. The house is now known as
Cowper’s Lodge and is situated in the High Street.
