Chalfont & Latimer 2 / 270

Chalfont & Latimer station opened in 1889 and is located in the Buckinghamshire village of Little Chalfont, which serves the three Chalfont villages (Chalfont St Giles, Chalfont St Peter and Little Chalfont) as well as the village of Latimer. The station is a good place to alight for pleasant walks in the Chiltern Hills and the Chess Valley.

On the edge of Little Chalfont is 16th-century Grade II-listed Beel House, whose famous residents have included the Duke of Buckingham, Dirk Bogarde, Ozzy Osbourne and Robert Kilroy-Silk.

On the edge of Latimer village is the historical mansion Latimer Place, where Charles I was imprisoned in 1647, Charles II took refuge before fleeing abroad, and where German prisoners of war were held before being transferred to camps during World War II. Nowadays it is a hotel and conference centre.
