Located at the northern end of the Metropolitan line, in the steep-sided Chess Valley, this leafy corner of south east Buckinghamshire has long been a favourite with those looking for a house move away from the hustle and bustle of the inner London suburbs. Nestling within the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Chesham has wonderful countryside walks on the doorstep, yet is only around 35 to 50 minutes journey time from central London. Characterised by characterful market towns and pretty villages, it’s not surprising that the Chesham area continues to prove attractive to those looking for a house that gives an alternative to living in the city while still remaining easily accessible for work, or all the social and leisure facilities London offers. Truly the best of both worlds!
As the town centre has a large pedestrianized area on the High Street, it makes browsing through the many individual shops, as well as the well-known national chains, a real pleasure. Chesham also continues to take pride in its reputation as a Chilterns market town, holding general markets twice per week, together with a monthly market specialising in local produce.
Chesham is the largest town in the local area. Located very centrally both local towns and for journeys further afield, it is 11 miles south-east of the county town of Aylesbury and 25 miles (40 km) north west of central London. It is the fifth largest town in Buckinghamshire, with a population of some 20,300 people. There are many places of interest close by, including Hawridge Court Castle – 2 miles to the north, Castle Tower – 3 miles South West, and Great Missenden Castle – 4 miles West. The history of the area is very apparent from the large number of other castles close by, such as Berkhamsted, Hampden Grims Ditch mounds, Hampden Danes Camp, The Mount and High Wycombe.
The local community hosts a website called Chesham People, giving information about a whole host of local events. There are also useful links to sports and social clubs, shops and even job opportunities, which can be very helpful when you’re looking to move to a new area. There are several leisure facilities, including the Elgiva Theatre, Lowndes Park and the Moor Gym and Swim, with an outdoor swimming pool, which tends to be very popular in fine weather. Walking is also popular and the Chesham Town Council is committed to promoting walking, with the town recognised as the first “Walkers are Welcome” town in the Chilterns.
