THE CHALFONTS are four main villages in south east Buckinghamshire, on the edge of the Chilterns. Chalfont St Peter is one of the largest villages in the UK with nearly 13,000 residents. Together with Chalfont St Giles, Little Chalfont and The Households, this is ‘The Chalfonts’.

The area’s close proximity to the city, at just 25 miles (40 km) from London, has made this an attractive location for city commuters. The area of Chalfont St Giles has been a popular location for several film and television programmes. It doubled as Walmington-on-Sea in the 1971 film version of “Dad’s Army” and was the location for “The Miller’s Tale” episode of the BBC drama. “The Canterbury Tales”. The village was also used in an episode of the BBC Television sitcom “As Time Goes By”.

The area has several notable residents. Chalfont St Giles includes: satirist Armando Ianucci, musician Noel Gallagher, and ex Lib Dem leader and Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg.

Little Chalfont developed in the 20th-century following the opening of Chalfont Road station in 1889. Today, the Chalfont & Latimer station in Little Chalfont provides rail access to Central London via the Metropolitan line and Chiltern Railways.

More recently, Little Chalfont has become home to two industrial laboratories and an office development, part of GE Healthcare, originally the Radiochemical Centre, and later Amersham International.

Little Chalfont Farmers Market was launched in September 2009 with the support of the Parish Council and local regeneration groups. The Farmers Market takes place in the Village Hall car park on the second Saturday of each month.

What Our Customers Say

Over the past eight years that we have been advertising with The Local Directory, I have not had the chance to express my gratitude for the hard work and efforts that you and your team have put in to helping us gain a great clientele and become one of the region’s most well-known building companies.

We believe that advertising with you has not only gained Ultimate Construction recognition within our surrounding towns, but has also given the community who receive the magazine a sense of confidence that Ultimate Construction is a company here to stay! Once again many thanks for all you have done and we look forward to continuing our relationship with The Local Directory for many years to come.

AdamOwner, Ultimate Construction

Since we started advertising with The Local Directory, we have received a surprisingly high number of referrals. Our customers are pleased to find us in the Directory and it’s a great guide for local businesses in the area. One of the main reasons we advertise regularly, is that it’s good value for money: its distribution is certified so you know that every household will receive it. It has a great mix of editorial content as well as advertising and is always interesting to read when it arrives each month. Would recommend it as a great medium to increase awareness and sales to any local business.

JessManager, The Love Your Water™ Team

When getting your message out to your audience – the Local Directory is a key player in getting it to those who you want to share it with! I have never been disappointed with the input from the team and communications with Nisha has always gone very smoothly. A very professional, well organised and presented company. Excellent value for money advertising too!

AnnaManager, Wheelhouse Vets

I have been pleasantly surprised by the response I have received by advertising in the Local Directory for the last few months. I was slightly dubious at first but I have had, on average, a couple of good enquiries each week and as a result of this have decided not only to continue my advertising for longer than I had anticipated, but have also put my advertisement into more magazines. To anyone who is unsure I would say give it a go!!’

iFillYa Kitchens & Bathrooms have been using the Local Directory to advertise our company and services for about three years. Originally we advertised in the Amersham Local Directory, but we have been so delighted with the number of enquiries we received from this advertising that we soon expanded into advertising in the Chalfont and then Beaconsfield Local Directories. As a small but expanding family-run business looking to develop our professional reputation in Amersham and the surrounding areas, we have found the Local Directory to be one of our most successful forms of advertising. We also think the Local Directory plays a vital role in informing the local community of small businesses, services and events in their area. Thank you Local Directory!
