Hello, may I join the conversation?  I lived in Wooburn from 1956 until 1993.  My father and his sisters attended Wooburn School and my granddad had a butchers shop on the Green.
I have heard of Woobur Park and my dad has a cheeky verse which includes that name.  He never mentioned the college to me.  He went to High Wycombe Technical College.

It is The Wye that runs through Wooburn and right up to Cores End.

The house that was used to film Fawlty Towers was renamed Fawlty Towers after the filming.  It did burn down.
