THE CHALFONTS are four main villages in south east Buckinghamshire, on the edge of the Chilterns. Chalfont St Peter is one of the largest villages in the UK with nearly 13,000 residents. Together with Chalfont St Giles, Little Chalfont and The Households, this is ‘The Chalfonts’.
The area’s close proximity to the city, at just 25 miles (40 km) from London, has made this an attractive location for city commuters. The area of Chalfont St Giles has been a popular location for several film and television programmes. It doubled as Walmington-on-Sea in the 1971 film version of “Dad’s Army” and was the location for “The Miller’s Tale” episode of the BBC drama. “The Canterbury Tales”. The village was also used in an episode of the BBC Television sitcom “As Time Goes By”.
The area has several notable residents. Chalfont St Giles includes: satirist Armando Ianucci, musician Noel Gallagher, and ex Lib Dem leader and Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg.
Little Chalfont developed in the 20th-century following the opening of Chalfont Road station in 1889. Today, the Chalfont & Latimer station in Little Chalfont provides rail access to Central London via the Metropolitan line and Chiltern Railways.
More recently, Little Chalfont has become home to two industrial laboratories and an office development, part of GE Healthcare, originally the Radiochemical Centre, and later Amersham International.
Little Chalfont Farmers Market was launched in September 2009 with the support of the Parish Council and local regeneration groups. The Farmers Market takes place in the Village Hall car park on the second Saturday of each month.
