 "Chalfont Cycles" 25 Market Place-Owned by Jack Hearn and Peggy Draycott.They left Chalfont in about '85 to open a B&B in Blandford,leaving Peg's son John in charge.Sold up about '87.I worked there every Saturday and holiday from the age of twelve untill they closed.Fond memories.Always remember being sent down to Claydons for a pint of pigeon milk,knew it was a wind up but Peg was so convincing.Old Tom Claydon just gave me a wry smile and told me to tell her he had'nt had time to milk them yet.

Didn't the pet shop become Chalfont Home Stores and then move down to the current location, which used to be Cargo (and it's previous incarnation).
