The parish of Chesham, which formerly comprised Ashley Green, Chartridge and Latimer, now constituted separate parishes, contains the town of Chesham with its hamlet of Waterside. The existing parish covers an area of 1,386 acres, of which 736 acres are arable land, 621 permanent grass, and 16 woods and plantations. The town lies in a picturesque situation about 340 ft. above the ordnance datum on the southern slope of the chalky range of the Chiltern Hills. The Metropolitan railway throws out from Chalfont Road a branch line which terminates here in a station erected behind the High Street. Chesham had formerly a local board of nine members, but under the Local Government Act, 1894, an urban district council of eighteen members was established. It is a thriving town, owing its prosperity mainly to the boot and shoe trade, the chief factories being those of Messrs. Reynolds and Mr. John Hayes. The brewing industry is carried on to a certain extent, and the beech woods on the surrounding hills provide timber for the saw-mills, where it is turned into coarse wooden-ware chairs, spades, hoops, &c. There are two brush factories, which employ a good many hands, but the straw-plait trade, which was formerly important, is now nearly extinct.
The increase in population brought about by the establishment of large factories has caused the town to extend northwards along the hill on the Berkhampstead road, and this colony of artisans’ dwellings and business works is known as the New Town, a straggling and rather uninteresting quarter. The waterworks and reservoir and the cemetery with its two mortuary chapels, opened in 1858, are placed here. The new quarter is also served by a mission room. The houses have encroached on and inclosed Higham Mead, mentioned in documents of the 17th century, in which there rises a spring head of the River Chess, which flows through the town. The older part of the town is situated lower down in the valley and stretches along the Berkhampstead road, which is here known as High Street. Where it is joined by Blucher Street on the west it widens into the Broadway, where there is an old house, ‘High House,’ which dates probably from the beginning of the 17th century. The cage, pound and stocks used formerly to be kept here, but were removed in 1833. Further down the High Street, passing the George and Crown Hotels, the town hall is reached. It was partly rebuilt by Lord Chesham in 1856, the period when many of the public buildings in Chesham were erected, and is the property of the present holder of the title. The open part below is used for the market held on Wednesday ever since the grant to the Earl of Oxford in 1257. The busiest times, however, are on 21 April, 22 July, and 28 September, when the fairs are held.
Church Street, which branches off the High Street where the town hall stands, runs west and then south past the vicarage and church. Nos. 54 and 56 Church Street (originally one house) represent a 14th-century domestic building with much original detail remaining; it was added to in the 17th century and has modern alterations. The most striking external feature is the original moulded wooden tracery in the window of the gabled upper story of the solar wing. There are also many houses of 17th-century origin situated not only in Church Street, but in Germain Street, Blucher Street and King Street, the majority of which have been considerably altered and added to in later times.

"Thankyou so much for the care and speed that you gave me for scrapping my car. I'd had her a long time and was sad to see her go, but the guy who removed the car was so professional about it, it was easier than I thought. I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
