WING is a small village and parish, in the same hundred as Ivinghoe, about 5 miles N. by W. from that town, and rather more than 3 S.W. from Leighton Buzzard (Bedfordshire), situated near the road from the latter town to Aylesbury. The chief, indeed the only ornament of this village is its handsome church of St Peter: the benefice, which is a vicarage, in the gift of the Earl of Chesterfield, is at present enjoyed by the Rev. John Felix. The population of the parish, as taken at the last census (1841) was 1,052.
