AMERSHAM was the launch pad for the first ever edition of Local Directory in October 2006 and it has been our privilege to serve this popular Buckinghamshire market town ever since, even basing our Head Office here.

Nestled in the Chiltern Hills, 27 miles (43km) north west of London and resolutely part of the London commuter belt (due to the presence of a Metropolitan Line station) Amersham is split into two distinctive areas: Old Amersham that sits in the valley of the River Misbourne and can date its origins back to Anglo Saxon times, and Amersham on the Hill (or “Amersham Town” or the “New Town” or even “Top Amersham” as the locals like to call it) which was created around the new railway station in the late 19th century.

During the 17th century and 18th century a key industry in the town was brewing, which may explain the presence of several quaint, olde worlde pubs and coaching inns in the Old Town. In addition to brewing, tanning, lace manufacture and brickmaking all had a prominent place in Amersham’s manufacturing past.

Having an abundance of attractive and diverse settings,  Amersham has been used as a location for several films and TV dramas, including Carve Her Name with Pride, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Poirot, Midsomer Murders and Chucklevision, to name a few. Jennifer Worth RN RM, the British nurse and musician upon whose best-selling trilogy of memoirs about her work as a midwife the  TV series Call The Midwife was based, was raised in Amersham.

The Amersham Local directory was the first magazine to be launched in October 2006. It is distributed in the HP6 & part HP7 areas, which include:-

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!
