Bourne End & Wooburns

Bourne End and Wooburns was the tenth Local Directory magazine to be launched in November 2016. The village of Bourne End sits close to the border between Buckinghamshire and Berkshire, and near the point where the River Wye empties into the River Thames (“bourne” being an obsolete term for river, hence “end of the river”). Originally the village was located half a mile downstream from its present location.

Its riverside situation was the perfect location for its four mills which provided the bulk of local employment during their hey-days, along with the local farms and two wharfs on the Thames. During the 1850s the new Isambard Kingdom Brunel railway linking Maidenhead to High Wycombe created the Bourne End station, which boosted the local economy as well as the mills, allowing locals to travel more widely.

The neighbouring Wooburns comprises a collection of villages that includes Wooburn Green, Wooburn Moor, Wooburn Common and Wooburn Town, all situated within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The River Wye runs through the area on its way to Bourne End and the locals are particularly proud of the attractive Green with its listed buildings dotted around. The Warren Nature Reserve adjoins Wooburn Park. In the Domesday Book of 1086 the village was recorded as Waborne though earlier, in 1075, it had been referred to as Waburna.

The former Wooburn Grange Country Club was used as the exterior of the Fawlty Towers hotel in the classic 1970s sitcom. Sadly the building was destroyed by a fire in 1991, then demolished and a housing estate was built in its place.

These days with rail and road accessibility to London, the whole area is a popular place for commuters to live. The villages still sustain many businesses and services while retaining an individual and community-like atmosphere.

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!
