The History of Chalfont Heights

Chalfont Heights has been a private housing estate since the land was first bought for this purpose by Lewis Stroud in 1927. The main picture below shows a MG sports car taking part in a “Chalfont Hill Climb” event in 1933. The smaller picture shows the same spot today, at the junction of Woodside Hill and Lincoln Road.
