Forty Green is a hamlet in the parish of Penn in Buckinghamshire, though found south of Penn village itself, by Knotty Green (itself a suburb now of Beaconsfield). Notwithstanding its closeness to the townscape, Forty Green manages to maintain a delightful rural distinctness, all placed within the Chiltern Hills.

The village pub, The Royal Standard of England, claims to be the oldest pub in the land, and its early mediæval timbers, with the marks of the carpenters' adzes still upon them, tell of venerable age.
