The plantation stores...... The corner shop.......Heaths store.

I seem to remember something about a hut......???

But, thinking of "The Hut". Was there a bit of a provisions store, up Chalfont common way? Somewhere near Cross lanes called "The hut"

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.

The hut had a corrigated roof and was in a patch of roughly kept ground but could be clearly seen from the pavement.
I also remember Johns transport cafe. I lived on gravel hill just along from there I think Jack Taylor the farmer lived next door to it.What happy memories in Deanacre cottages could go on for ever.
        HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL.

Arr, that hut, that was in the apple orchard. Tommy ......... Lived there. He was a runner, he could be seen running to Amersham every day. He was a plumber I think, not very tall around 5'3". If Tobic was still around, he could tell you, he used to work in the machine shop next door
