Dear Chalfont forum members,

We are considering moving to Chalfonts, more likely on the St Giles side.
1. Would you please advise us of the journey time in the rush hours if someone wants to drive to Wycombe hospital and back in the mornings and afternoons? I was thinking of taking a back route through Jordans, Beaconsfield and M40.
2. Do we know what will be the effect of the vibrations from the the HS2 tunnel on the overlying houses?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi there, welcome to the area (nearly).
Chalfont st giles to wycombe hospital at around 8:30 will probably take you 25/30 minutes . The problem will be getting through/around Beaconsfield . If you cut through Jordans and go along Potkiln lane you will get stuck at the bottom trying to turn onto the A40, can take 10 minutes to get out there. If you go along Longbottom lane and try to go through Old Beaconsfield you will get held up even worse. Might be quicker getting on the A40 at Gerrards Cross. Handy Cross roundabout at Wycombe can be a nightmare and you will usually crawl down the hill to the hospital.
Coming home will probably be a lot easier, busy getting up to handy cross but much quicker after that. Unless there's been an accident of course
Other than that its easy !

Hs2 tunnel will run underneath the pond at the bottom of the village away from the majority of houses. Plus it will be 60m deep.
Is back in the game! :)

Many thanks, but would the house under which the tunnel runs fell the vibration?

Highly unlikely to feel any vibrations or to hear any noise, HS2 is very deep and in a concrete tunnel. You do not feel any vibrations from the underground in London and in places that is far shallower.

I think the tunnel is about 20m deep under the pond, according to the published plans.
