Gerrards Cross and Farnhams

GERRARDS CROSS & FARNHAMS (also known as Farnham Royal and Farnham Common) are villages and civil parishes in the South Bucks district of Buckinghamshire, England. They are in the south of the county, separated from the London Borough of Hillingdon by the village of Denham.

Gerrards Cross lies on the A40 20 miles north west of central London, close to the M25/M40 motorway intersection and with a fast rail connection to London Marylebone provided by Chiltern Railways. The town lies 80 metres above sea level. To the south the terrain slopes down gently to the Thames at Eton. With a population of 7352, Gerrards Cross is one of the larger villages in the South Bucks District, a predominantly rural (89% green belt) area immediately outside Greater London. It is widely regarded as a very desirable place to live because of its high quality residential accommodation set in a spacious, leafy environment with excellent communications. At the heart of the village, alongside the A40 is Gerrards Cross Common, much loved by residents and used extensively for recreation and for dog walking.

Today, The Farnhams can be described as urban villages. In recent years, the proximity of the M4 and M40 motorways, good rail services via the Chiltern Line through Beaconsfield and Gerrards Cross, and Heathrow airport nearby, have attracted more newcomers. However, woodland and acres of open countryside are never far away. These factors have helped make The Farnhams a popular place in which to live. As a result, the average price of a house in the parish is twice the South Bucks average. Most commercial activity takes place in Farnham Common with its shops and small supermarkets, offices, restaurants and pubs; a number of large garden centres are nearby. There are well regarded schools in both Farnham Common (Farnham Common Infant and Junior Schools) and Farnham Royal (St Mary’s Farnham Royal Church of England Primary School, Dair House Pre-Preparatory and Caldicott Preparatory School).

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.

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!
