Heath End is a hamlet in the parish of Great Missenden in Buckinghamshire, England. During the 20th century, it became attached to Great Kingshill to the south west. The old centre of the hamlet is where Spurlands End Road meets Heath End Road.

The hamlet's name is derived from being historically located at the edge of a large area of heathland (now vanished) called Wycombe Heath or Holmer Heath which once covered several thousand acres to the south.

There is some evidence in the Cartulary of Missenden Abbey that the hamlet was once known as Birchmere.[1]
