Thanks Art, i'll delete.  I have bought duplicates of a few of these cards (accidentally) so might happen again, especially the popular ones.

Page 9 Denham Lane "I'd hazard a guess the side road is Nortoft Road, but not convinced."

You should be convinced, the house with the white 'eyebrow' over the upstairs window is still there.

The Italian Garden was to the left hand side of the main house. I 'think' that not much of it had survived to the 50/60's but the line of it has been preserved between the offices that have been built on the site. Also have a look at this old Pathe News Clip

Page 11 - "The Parish Church and vicarage taken from the meadows (presumably now the car park).  No post marked date."

I think just a little further away: From the allotments with the white fence being the boundary to Church Lane with the site of the school (site)  on the other side of the bushes.

View of Kings Waye from Chalfont Park golf club. 

That confused me for a bit until I realised that the obvious road is Austenway. Very interesting how wide the Misbourne was back then.

Did you look in the "Old Village Photos" thread or, is that where you can't see the photo? This thread is the discussion thread associated with the pictures.

Is the building to the left where Handy Stores is now? I would have thought that the shops and attached townhouses were older than 1973...
