The name Buckinghamshire is Anglo-Saxon in origin and means the district of Bucca's home. The county has been so named since about the 12th century; however, the county itself has existed since it was a subdivision of the kingdom of Mercia (585–919).
Buckinghamshire can be considered as two sections geographically. The south of the county leads from the River Thames up the gentle inclines of the Chiltern Hills to the more abrupt slopes on the northern side bordering the Vale of Aylesbury, a large flat expanse of land, which includes the route of the River Great Ouse.
Soil types vary through the county, from sandy flint in the High Wycombe area, to heavy clay throughout much of the Aylesbury Vale, although fine, deep soils are often found in long-term cultivated gardens of properties in villages such as Long Crendon. In clay areas of Aylesbury, it will be helpful to support wooden posts in metal supports to prevent rot, or else use concrete fence posts for longer life.
