Denham Lane, no date but late 50's? Interesting speed sign for 60mph - that would have been interesting on that road / surface. I'd hazard a guess the side road is Nortoft Road, but not convinced.

The old Chalfont St Peter is noted in Audrey Wheelbands book "These two charming early 16th century cottages stood in the high street next to the post office.  In the first, to the left, lived the Wingfield family.  Annie Wingfield was a teacher in the infants school all of her working life.  Several generations were taught their first lessons by her.  Next door was a barber, pictured standing at his door.  His name was Mr herrleinn.  He was a German and, during World War I, young boys bursting with patiortism would throw lighted 'squib' fireworks through his doorway.  He called for police protection.  Replacing this beauty spot now stands new three storey building with shops on the ground floor."

Postmarked 1912.

The High Street is from various angles and dates the most common postcard I have purchased.  Here is one with no date or road so pre-1904.  Let me know if I duplicate one!

Chalfont Park Lake and Weir, no post mark date. No island as at the moment from the looks of it, but I think  from memory the island as it is now only appeared late 80's / early 90's after some major works there.
