WENDOVER & VILLAGES

Joining the Local Directory family in November 2019 is the delightful and popular market town of Wendover in Buckinghamshire. Occupying a prime position at the northern end of a natural crossing point through the Chiltern Hills, Wendover has had a market charter since the thirteenth century and still holds a weekly market to this day. Wendover can trace its history back even further to the Norman Conquest when the manor of “Wendovre” was included in the Hundred of Aylesbury, with William the Conqueror as its tenant in chief. A popular stopping point, catering to traffic on the road running along the Chilterns between Chinnor and Tring, as well as that crossing the Chilterns between London and Aylesbury, both parliamentary and royalist forces visited the town during the Civil War, with looting reported on both sides.

In 1721, the Wendover to Buckingham Turnpike Trust was established, and Wendover became a regular stopping point for coach routes to and from London. The Wendover Arm of the Grand Union Canal was completed in 1797 and served local industries while also providing a water supply for the parent canal. In September 1892, the railway reached the town with the opening of Wendover Railway Station on the Metropolitan Railway’s line to Aylesbury, though these days it serves solely as a main line station. Situated in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the ancient Ridgeway National Trail, an 85-mile walking route from Avebury to Ivinghoe, passes along Wendover High Street.

In 1913, Alfred de Rothschild, invited the Royal Flying Corps to conduct manoeuvres on his land in the nearby manor of Halton, and the land continued to be used by the British Army throughout the First World War. In 1916 the Royal Flying Corps moved its air mechanics school from Farnborough, Hampshire to Halton, and in 1917, the school was permanently accommodated there, in what was to become the current RAF Halton, now one of the largest RAF stations in the UK.

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!!’

Barry HolmesOwner, Holmes Garden Services

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!
