From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wendover is a market town and civil parish at the foot of the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire, England. It is situated at the point where the main road across the Chilterns between London and Aylesbury intersects with the once important road along the foot of the Chilterns. The town is some 35 miles (56 km) north west of London and 5 miles (8 km) south east of Aylesbury, and is very popular with commuters working in London.

The name is of Brythonic Celtic origin. The first element, wen can mean “blessed” or “white” (wyn or gwyn in Modern Welsh). The second element, duẞr or dwfr simply means water (dŵr in Modern Welsh, a common element in English place names such as Dover).
