The Bucks advertiser posted a picture of Barrack yard a few weeks ago. Does anyone know where it was? I have a feeling it was near the George Pub.It was where my father's family lived when they moved to Chalfont in the 1900s. Thanks in advance
Weekends are a bit like rainbows. They look good from a distance but disappear when you get up close to them.

Just a small correction:-
If you were to walk streight down the Market Place, crossed the High Street towards the precinct keeping a little towards what was the Bakers Arms ( Poachers) . This would have been the entrance to Barrack Yard.
The entrance into the Precinct by the George pub was know as The Retreat.

It's a free country, adopt whatever PC stance you want. Just don't tell me which stance I should take just because it clashes with your opinion.

ArtB, may I ask which map you have and where one might be obtained? I have an 1897 map, which is on the back of Godfrey's Old Ordnance Survey map of the South Ciulterns (1886), but it only covers a small portion of the village, and I'd love to have more maps of the village. Yours must be after 1920, as it shows the Memorial Hall, which was opened by Earl Beatty in 1920.

It's from a 1925 O/S map that I acquired a considerable number of years ago.
 
However, have a look here http://www.old-maps.co.uk/maps.html use SL9 9QQ as the postcode and scroll down the list of maps on the right hand side of the screen - 1925 - Pre WWII 1:2500 is the same. - 16 as a pdf
