The scenic beauty of Chesham was once a well-kept secret, but that all changed with the arrival of the Metropolitan Railway. This charming town – set amidst the rolling Chiltern Hills – now became accessible to visitors from London. As it quickly gained a reputation for its community feel and picturesque setting, many of those visitors ended up staying.

It’s not surprising that Chesham has grown into the sought-after location it is today. The largest town in the Chiltern District feels more like a quaint village, complete with a weekly market and historic town square. With that said, the area boasts all the convenience of a bustling city, but without the crowds. All of the major retailers can be found on the High Street, and residents can make use of the town’s cinema or large leisure centre.

History of Chesham

While Chesham offers all the modern luxuries, newcomers are often most attracted by its historical charm. Whether it’s the vibrant market square, period properties or weekly farmers market, this heritage is ever-present. Not surprisingly, the town has roots dating back as far as the Neolithic era. Archeological findings have even uncovered ruins of a Roman villa and the planting of grapevines.

The industries of the 19th century weren’t quite as colourful as these humble beginnings. Beer brewing was the major enterprise, closely followed by prosperous boot and brush-making industries.

Although the town developed faster that some of its rural neighbours, Chesham remained cut off from London until 1889. This year saw the opening of an underground station, which ferried visitors along the Metropolitan Railway. Development was to follow as many came to appreciate the surrounding beauty and Chesham’s relaxed atmosphere.
