I've been acquiring many old photos / postcards over the years with the intention of posting them. I'll try and get round to doing so here.  If anyone has an issue with copyright (most of them should be out of copyright) then let me know and i'll remove if required.  Discussions here.

Here's a popular one to start with - the view of the Greyhound and the George with the River Misbourne Ford circa 1909.

http://www.fired-works.com/ at the top of Market Place do a great range of coasters and table place mats, pop in and enquire!

NSE entrance, or 'the colony' as it was known.  No idea when though.

Photo of Wheatleys, now on the corner of Old Mead.  Is this a listed building in the village?  It features in quite a few old postcards so must have been one of the features of the village.  No idea of the date.

Wonderful pictures of a lovely village ruined by greed and a lack of appreciation of the irreplaceable heritage

First of a few from the Chalfont Park area. The waterfall down from Chalfont House / British Alcan / Wilson Bowden development. Postcard is dated circa 1934.  Beautiful spot which appears to have changed over the years:
