Amersham is a London Underground and National Rail station in the town of Amersham in the Chiltern district of Buckinghamshire, England. Amersham station is a terminus of the London Underground's Metropolitan line. It is 2. miles (3. km) north-west of Charing Cross, making it the second furthest Underground station from central London and the second most westerly station of the whole London Underground system, after Chesham.

He was one of the town magistrates. While he travelled into town, he thought about his plan for the portrait. And Sir Jee told Smith the story of the portrait and why he wanted to get rid of it. Smith thought for a minute and then said: 'All right, I'll do it; just to help yo. It was a wild and dangerous plan, but he thought it was just possible.

The town centre has been progressively redeveloped since the 1960s and .

The town centre has been progressively redeveloped since the 1960s and was pedestrianised in the 1990s. The population of the town has increased to slightly over 20,000 but further growth has been restricted because the area forms part of the Metropolitan Green Belt. The primary industries of the town in medieval times were flour production, woodworking and weaving of wool.

The town filled with a silent, heavy dust from their passage. There’s nothing there any more. ‘Your books,’ she said. The town’s empty, but we found native life in the hills, sir. The canal waters lay blue in the sun, and a quiet wind moved in the strange trees. Good-by, town!’ said Mr Bittering. ‘Your Illes and your fine ior uele rre,’ she said. Dark people.

Fifteen years after the first town history appeared, this sequel to The Book of Amersham takes the story a stage further - from 1800 to date. Here are the high days of the coaching era, when carriers slowly ploughed through dreadful roads; here too, the railway revolution which brought Metroland to the Misbourne vale. As the spec builders profited, church and school developed, theatre and cinema came and went, pubs proliferated, news was made in a chemist's shop and squire and rector made way for local government and commuter-credit. Market and fair gave way to store and superstore, traffic clogged even Amersham's wide High Street, and the railways were electrified. Amersham became a commuter paradise and the original town host to tourists. Wars took away the young men, and brought strange crafts; a statue paused in Broadway where the cottages once stood, and even the atomic age found a place in Amersham Common. Yesterday's Town: Amersham tells the story of two centuries, recording change and reminding us that heritage is a moveable feast.
