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).
