Town of Marlow
The south Buckinghamshire town of Marlow (previously known as Great Marlow or Chipping Marlow), with a population of about 14,000, is located on the northern bank of the River Thames, facing the county of Berkshire on the southern bank. It is some 33 miles west of central London, about 4 miles south-west of High Wycombe and 5 miles north-west of Maidenhead.
Great Marlow urban district was created in 1896 and renamed Marlow urban district in 1897. In 1974, it was merged with the municipal borough of High Wycombe and Wycombe rural district, to form the local government district of Wycombe in the county of Buckinghamshire. On 1 April 2020 Wycombe district was merged with all other local authorities in Buckinghamshire, other than Milton Keynes, to form the unitary authority of the Buckinghamshire Council.
Marlow Jewish Community
A small Jewish community developed in Marlow during World War II, comprised largely of evacuees from heavily populated areas, but it appears to have become defunct sometime prior to the end of the War.
