Skirmett is a hamlet in the parish of Hambleden, in Buckinghamshire, England. It lies in the Hambleden Valley in the Chiltern Hills, between the villages of Hambleden and Fingest.

All Saints - now a private home

The simple flint church dated from the mid-19th century and has now been converted into a home.

The Frog – now the only pub in the village

There is a line of brick and timber-framed cottages along one side of the road and just the one public house, which is called The Frog, which was formerly known as The Kings Arms.

Hope Cottage – The former police house

There used to be a police presence in the village, and the local policeman was housed with his family in Hope Cottage, but this was sold a good while ago and is now a private residence.
