The Beaconsfield edition of Local Directory was launched in 2013 and was our sixth magazine. It has become established as one of the best ways for local businesses to advertise directly to the residents of this popular and prosperous Buckinghamshire market town.
Labelled as “Britain’s Richest Town” by the Daily Telegraph in 2008, it still has highest proportion in the UK of £1 million-plus houses for sale. Beaconsfield was the home constituency of Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, who was awarded the title of the 1st Earl of Beaconsfield by Queen Victoria in 1876. It’s charter of 1269 allowed for the town to hold an annual fair “for the trading of goods and livestock”, and the tradition lives on for one day every May when the main streets around the town centre still close completely for a fun fair.
Beaconsfield’s proximity to both Pinewood and Elstree Film Studios gave rise to the National Film and Television School, where many film directors and technicians have learned their craft. The town’s unchanging nature has made it the perfect backdrop for plenty of film and TV locations, including Brief Encounter, James Bond’s Thunderball, Misomer Muders and Lewis.
Any tour of Beaconsfield is not complete without a visit to the world’s oldest model village, Bekonscot. Acknowledged to be the inspiration for many other model villages and miniature parks across the world, Bekonscot is the representation of classic English village life in miniature, mostly dating from the 1930s.
Disraeli was not the only noteworthy resident. Beaconsfield was home to the authors Enid Blyton and the late Sir Terry Pratchett. The politician and statesman Edmund Burke, writer GK Chesterton, and TV and radio presenter Zoe Ball have all once called Beaconsfield home.
