Chalfont Lodge postcard from 1970.  There is a Chalfont Lodge at the top of the GX Golf Club site on Denham Lane, but I know this was only built in the last 15 or so years though might have been on the site of the original.

To get you in the mood for a leisurely weekend, here is the NSE's recreation ground.  I wonder if it is the current football pitch by Cricket Field Cottages, I assume so. Chalfont St Peter Hockey Club used to play on the football pitches in the early 70's, definitely for summer games, unlikely for winter games. Looks like a water tower on site too?

Austen Wood common, postmarked 1939. School Lane and the Catholic Church are in view. Remarkable how few trees there were on the Common then.

Back to the top of Gold Hill and the Chestnuts.  This postcard has a brief history which I've also posted.  No postmark to date it.
