Welcome to Chalfont St. Giles
Situated on the edge of the Chilterns midway between London and Oxford, Chalfont St Giles features attractive 18th century cottages, Village Green with maypole, duck pond fed by the River Misbourne and a quaint High Street. In recent years the village has won the Best Kept Village three times and been runner up four times.
Chalfont St Giles is an attractive friendly village and has won many accolades over the years as such.
Folklore suggests the word Chalfont means chalk spring – a reference to the water carrying capabilities of the local terrain.
Some of the oldest buildings show fine examples of Norman architecture most notably The Vache and the Parish Church which dates back to 12th century with a lychgate. The Vache stands on a site of a medieval residence on land granted by William the Conqueror.
Half timbered Stonewell Farm is mentioned in the Domesday Book and is situated on the corner of Bowstridge Lane and the High Street.
John Milton retired during the Great Plague of London to Milton’s Cottage where he wrote Paradise Lost. Now open to the public there are rare editions of his work plus three cannon balls which were found embedded in the east window of the Parish Church.
Newlands Park dates back to 1208 and was a refuge for suffragettes most notably Emmaline Pankhurst. Now part of Buckinghamshire Chilterns University.
There is a nursery and infant school in School Lane and a junior school in Parsonage Road.
The village has been used for the backdrop of many film and television programmes most notably the 1971 Dad’s Army film where it doubled for Walmington-on-Sea.
Commuters can easily join the motorways of the M25 and M40. Trains to London can be accessed from Chalfont and Latimer station in Little Chalfont with Chiltern Line and Metropolitan Line trains into the city. Seer Green and Jordans station is also nearby with Chiltern Line trains to Marylebone.
