It was not my intension to offend you, however, if you look at the first list. They are all shops that were there in the 50's.
Thus my comment. But as the list grew, it did indeed start including dated shops.

I guess you can add what you like, why not add some stores from the Xmas fun night. I'm sure there one or two that won't be back?

Anyone remember John's Cafe along from where Tesco is now in Gravel Hill? I believe it was owned/run by John Phipps who used to have a small shop in The Phygtle, Chalfont Common.

Best bacon sandwiches and a cuppa around,

He also did a bit of sight clearing, landscaping, sold a few logs and kept a few cattle.

yes, it was at the bottom of Chiltern Hill, if I remember correctly. There was also a siren on top of a pole right on the corner of the street

I think Mr, Birch. the caretaker at the school was a volunteer. he lived around half way between the "Bakers Arms" and Beesons.

Does anyone remember the travel shop at the bottom of Market Place opposite Barclays? I think it was run by a mother and son.
