Gold Hill Common, The Chestnuts, Chalfont St Peter postmarked 1912.  The long since gone pond featured here also appears in later postcards.

Chalfont Park again, this time marked as Gerrards Cross with a post mark in 1927.  Not sure whereabouts this is. 

Thanks to Art who suggested "Home Farm. It was on the right hand side as you went up the track through (well over the little footbridge) the ford, past the weir at the end of the lake up towards Chalfont Lodge."

Back to the Greyhound, but from the 'roundabout' side, though of course no roundabout when this was printed. No postmark for date. Notes Judge Jeffreys.
