Woodham, Buckinghamshire

Woodham is a hamlet and civil parish about 7.5 miles west of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire. The toponym is derived from the Old English for "home near a wood", referring to its proximity to the ancient Bernwood Forest. Woodham is on the ancient Akeman Street Roman road, which since the 1920s has been classified as the A41. In 1906 the Great Central Railway built a line through the parish and opened Akeman Street railway station where it crossed the main road at Woodham.
