Missenden & Hazlemere

Missenden & Hazlemere was the ninth edition of Local Directory to be launched in December 2015.

Great Missenden is an affluent village in the Misbourne Valley in the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire, situated between the towns of Amersham and Wendover. It is located in the heart of The Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is celebrated as the home of the late, much-adored children’s author, Roald Dahl, who is buried in the local churchyard. Gipsy House in the village was the author’s home from 1954 until his death in 1990, and still remains in the family. The village dedicated a museum to its iconic resident in 2005 and its quaint, narrow curving High Street of half-timbered and Georgian houses, shops, inns and a 14th century church is often featured on television dramas and shows including Midsomer Murders among others.

Located in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, surrounded by rolling chalk hills, magnificent beech woods and quiet valleys, Great Missenden was also temporarily home to Robert Louis Stevenson, the writer of famous works such as Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.  National Cycle Network route 57 goes through the centre of the village and the Chilterns Cycleway is just a few miles away. Wildlife too is varied and interesting. There has been a successful reintroduction of red kites in the area and some of the commons have rare species of orchids and butterflies. Local nature groups run many activities such as pond dipping, badger watching, moth trapping and bird watching.

Hazlemere was a small hamlet in the ancient Desborough Hundred, and the name is recorded as long ago as the 13th century. The crossroads at the centre of the village was originally the meeting point of three different parishes: Penn, Hughenden, and Chepping Wycombe. The original primary industry was farming and in Edwardian times a large proportion of the area was devoted to cherry orchards. Brickmaking was carried out at the Old Kiln and at Oakengrove. A prisoner of war camp was constructed in the grounds of Hazlemere Park during the Second World War. At the end of the war the camp was used as temporary accommodation for refugees from Europe, eventually closing in 1956.

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!
