Beaconsfield

Town in England » Buckinghamshire

Beaconsfield is a market town in Buckinghamshire lying almost 25 miles NW of London. The town sits in the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is part of the London commuter belt. The "New Town" was built 1 mile further to the north when the railway arrived at the turn of the 20th century.

The railway station is on the Chiltern Line that leads out of Marylebone towards High Wycombe, it then branches to Aylesbury and Birmingham Snow Hill.

Old Beaconsfield, which grew up on the Oxford Road in part to serve the coach traffic, is mirrored by New Beaconsfield which has grown up round the station.

Today the town is very prosperous and quite picturesque. It is the home of Bekonscot model village; and (the old) Beaconsfield Film Studio becoming the National Film and Television School, where many film directors and technicians have learned their craft.

An annual fair is traditionally held on May 10. Its charter originally allowed for a yearly market for the trading of goods and livestock, but it has now developed into a funfair, erected for one day only on the main roads of the "Old Town".
