 Transport.  Public transport is very  
 sparse in this area.  There is a bus  
 to Thame and back on Market days      
 (Tuesdays) and to Aylesbury and back

 to Birmingham railway line cuts the   
 area diagonally.  The southern line   
 across the S.W. corner is now only    
 used to supply the Thame Petrol Depot.
