Little Chalfont is situated in the county of Buckinghamshire, on the edge of the Chiltern Hills and about 30 miles from central London.
The Metropolitan Railway reached Little Chalfont in 1889. However, the village didn't really develop until the 1920's when land was released for housing to become part of Sir John Betjeman's "Metroland".
The present population is around 6000. The station is served by London Underground Metropolitan line and by Chiltern Railways resulting in excellent transport to and from London; Marylebone station can be reached in little over 30 minutes.
The village has a post office and a building society as well as a pharmacy, a Tesco Express and about 30 other shops. There are three dental practices, a doctors surgery and an optician. There are many places to eat including two Chinese and one Italian restaurant. In the village centre is the ‘Sugar Loaf’ bar restaurant.
There are two Junior Schools in the village as well as Dr. Challoner’s High School for Girls. There are three churches; Anglican, Methodist and Roman Catholic.
The Village Hall is centrally positioned next to the library.
A major local employer is GE Healthcare which took over Amersham PLC.
The headquarters of ‘The Entertainer’, a large toy retailer, is situated in the village.
Little Chalfont became a separate Parish in 2007; previously it was a ward within Amersham.
