I think it depends on where you are going really. The GX train is more expensive, but the fast train will get you to Marylebone in 25 mins. I think it's also more expensive to park at GX. Chalfont & Latimer is cheaper, but the train takes longer to get to Marylebone (if taking the Chiltern Line train, otherwise they're Metropolitan line trains). When I worked in Swiss Cottage, it was easier to drive to Chalfont & Latimer and catch a Met line train to Finchley Road and either walk or change trains for one stop, than it was to go via Marylebone. Horses for courses!
I used to be with it. But then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems scary and weird.

All of the Schools are very good, every time we have moved house, people looking at our previous properties have been moving to the area for the schools! I & my children went to St Joseph's RC school, and although Catholic it does take non catholics too, if that is your prefered choice, there is also a very big catchment area.  You may want to look at the schools before deciding where to live as Robertswood catchment area is Chalfont Common and Lovel End and the C of E Middles school are the rest of chalfont. 

Having grown up here since I was 2 and having lived on both sides of the village (and now having teenage sons of my own) I would not live up the Chalfont Common side as it is too far from the Station, Leisure Centre (civilisation!)etc., but having said that if you want more rural and slightly more for your money it is the way to go.

Thanks Fans.Food for thought there !I shall take a good look around at the weekend and get a gauge of what we're looking for.

We moved out of London 3 years ago,but moved too far out......doh  

The journey back in each day is getting the better of me, so whilst the schools are key,getting on the rattler monday to friday will also play a big part.

Don't be alarmed if you see someone doing round-robins asking for directions between the station,gold hill common and chalfont common this weekend

You might see one or two forum members in the White hart on Saturday lunchtime.

Football is on!

I'll probably be the only one looking for a City win though.....what with the Home Counties being a hot bed for United fans

I think there will be enough Arsenal fans and ABU's so you wont feel left out!

In that case you will be more than welcome in the White Hart as Rachael (landlady of said pub) is an Arsenal fan as well

I know - it's been threatened a few times that we'll put 'Lane' on the end of the sign, but to be fair, I think Rach would kill us all and then dance on our graves singing Hallelujah...if we were lucky!
