Syresham, or Sighere’s Ham as it was originally known, is an old forest village, surrounded by the remnants of ancient woodland – the hunting grounds of several Kings of England. The village is composed of a double loop on either side of a shallow valley through which flows a brook, reputedly the source of the great River Ouse. The population was once much larger than it is today (c800 inhabitants) and most of the land in and around the village was once owned by Magdalen College Oxford. St James Church dates from the 12th century and there are still buildings in the village constructed from stone obtained from a quarry just north of the church. The village is traversed by the Welsh Lane, an old drover’s road used to bring cattle and sheep to London.
For more than 60 years Silverstone has carved its mark as one of the leading motorsport venues, creating a powerful heritage around the world. Internationally renowned as the host of world class events, Silverstone is also famed for its exhilarating driving experiences, sumptuous corporate entertainment and prestigious conference facilities.
