Radclive Manor has an interesting and extensive history going back over five hundred years. From the 15th Century until 1965 Radclive Manor was owned by New College, Oxford. It is not conclusive when the house was originally built, but it is known to have existed in 1476 and to have been altered and added to in the 16th and then again in the 17th Century. References to Radclive Manor appear in all the standard books of reference such as Browne Willis, Lipscomb, Sheahan, the VCH, the RCHM and Pevsner, as well as in contributions to volumes such as the Records of Buckinghamshire.

The house is Grade II* Listed. Of note is a 1621 date stone, Elizabethan chimney stacks, particularly the five square shafts set diagonally, wooden mullion and transom windows with leaded panes, 16th Century wooden screen with embellished arches on Doric columns, 16th and early 17th century panelling, and an early 17th Century staircase with newels and ball finials, moulded handrail and elaborate pierced balustrade.

Radclive-cum-Chackmore comprises two villages, Chackmore, the larger, lies to the north of Buckingham and Radclive is 2 miles to the west of Buckingham in attractive countryside in a loop of the River Great Ouse. There is a parish church in Radclive and in Chackmore a public house and a well-regarded primary school. Everyday amenities are close by at the market town of Buckingham (about 2 miles).
