I stand to be corrected but the Lower Road starts from Chiltern Hill towards Gerrards Cross, the High Street runs from the Waggon & Horses through to Chiltern Hill, and there was the Kings Arms and the Rose & Crown pubs more or less opposite each other, then as is today the Greyhound and The George, and the Carpenters Arms was approximately where HSBC is today (no eyesore of a precinct in those days) and of course Poachers was the Bakers Arms and then opposite as is today The White Hart, 7 pubs in the old High Street.
Andrews (Menswear) was The Mans Shop and was of course in the High Street.
Robertsons Butchers was run by Tom Robertson who still has a butchers in Little Chalfont to this day.
There was another butchers Allum & Glandfield next to Claydons (now Birrings) tucked back by where the Tile shop used to be.

That was where Andersons, the first self-service supermarket in CSP, was located, not in the current building but in an earlier building on the site.

Couple of names that have come to me:

Mr Andrews was the owner/manager of Andrews Menswear/The Mans Shop
Had a lovely daughter called Julie/Julia (?) who looked after me on my first day starting at St Joseph's
He lived in the last house on the right as you went past Water Hall towards CSG.

Colin's Fish Bar (as it was originally called), the son, Keith Pigden took it over from his father. The last I heard Keith and his wife were still living in CSP, in Eleanor Road I believe.

Paddy the Irish barber that took over Darvill's employed an Italian guy, (cannot remember his name) but he eventually opened an Italian resturant in the precinct.

Pitchforths the Chemist - there a middle-aged guy who worked in there who had a penchant for wearing make-up amd womens clothing - he was not the manager. His wife was a PE lecturer at Newland Park College

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.

Sadly, no-one seems to have mentioned the Chalfont Bookshop.
