Great Marlow is a civil parish within Wycombe district in the English county of Buckinghamshire located north of the town of Marlow and south of High Wycombe. The parish includes the hamlets of Bovingdon Green, Burroughs Grove, Chisbridge Cross and Marlow Common, and Danesfield, a housing estate for predominantly RAF officers, although families of other ranks from the RAF, Royal Navy and British Army also live there. Prior to November 2007 the major settlement in Great Marlow was Marlow Bottom which has now become a civil parish in its own right.
The parish has been so named since Norman times. The ancient parish of Great Marlow, named to distinguish it from Little Marlow, was large, including the town of Marlow and rural areas north and west of the town. The ancient parish became a civil parish in the 19th century, and in 1896 the civil parish was divided. The town became Great Marlow Urban District (later renamed Marlow Urban District), leaving the rural areas in the parish of Great Marlow. In 1934 Lane End, in the far north of the parish, was transferred from Great Marlow to the parish of Fingest.
