An original photo from 1935, though no idea where, but promised that it was Chalfont St Peter!

Best guess so far (thank you Artb) - early morning picture across the Misbourne Valley taken from somewhere between Gravel Hill & Water Hall from the Amersham Road

A view of the precinct before it was there, with the bus stop and River Misbourne fully covered.  Looks rather nice doesn't it!!

An aerial view of Chalfont St Peter.  Another guess the date that will keep you busy over the weekend, also working out where your house is or should be!  I know the White Hart used to have this photo or something similar and I often found myself staring at it.  

Edit : Thanks again to Art who found a great stash of aerial photos of the village https://britainfromabove.org.uk/en/search?keywords=chalfont&country=global&year=all  so it is 1931.

A couple of great pictorial history postcards for the weekend by local artist Maureen Marsh. So the Misbourne started to be covered in 1904 which will help date a lot of the postcards I have / will post of the Greyhound / Misbourne.
