Chesham Community Orchard Project is a new initiative aiming to develop an orchard for the benefit of Chesham residents. Community orchards are places where varieties of fruit are grown by and for local people. They provide healthy fruit to share as well as a green haven for simple contemplation and enjoyment and are also excellent wildlife habitats and carbon sinks. Community orchards can revive interest in growing and provide a way of sharing knowledge and horticultural skills.

We’re keen to work with the entire community so please come along to our 1st ever general meeting to find out more and to get involved with the project.

Bois Lane, Chesham Bois is to be closed between Woodside Avenue and Stubbs Wood, from Saturday 31 March until Sunday 15 April to allow work to replace a water main. National Grid may also be working on the same section of road.

Please note: This will affect bus services in the area. Services 71 & 73 will not be allowed through the works and will need to operate to the temporary timetable which you can access by clicking Bus Diversions.

Below is a summary of the information sent to Cllr Peter Hudson. This details the changes to bus routes in the area which will affect Waterside residents.

Thanks for sharing this with us, Peter.


Journeys from Chesham Broadway to Penn Street or Little Chalfont should divert as follows;

  • JOURNEYS NOT VIA CHESHAM MOOR

from Chesham Broadway, normal line of route to Red Lion Street, continue ahead at the Waterside roundabout, continue up the hill along the A416 Amersham Road, left into North Road, right into Glebe Way, to Anne’s Corner, and then normal line of route.

Vice versa for the return journeys.

  • JOURNEYS VIA CHESHAM MOOR

from Chesham Broadway, normal line of route to Red Lion Street and left into Waterside, (via Pheasants Rise if timetabled to do so), right into Bois Moor Road, left into Cresswell Road, back to Moor Road, left into Moor Road, left on to the A416 Amersham Road, left into North Road, right into Glebe Way, to Anne’s Corner, and then normal line of route.

Vice versa for the return journeys. Note – Journeys heading towards Chesham and operating via Chesham Moor will need to use Waterside to go to Chesham Moor because of the “No Entry” along Moor Road. Having turned at Cresswell Road they will again need to use Waterside to ensure the Chesham bound stops are served.

  • The turning point for journeys terminating/turning at Chesham Moor will be Cresswell Road. Buses should pull into Cresswell Road and then turn by reversing into Appletree Walk. The timetable should only allow sufficient time to turn the bus and head back. However, if you do need to wait please do so in Cresswell Road and not in Bois Moor Road where it can be very congested.

Journeys from Chesham Broadway to Chesham Moor/Pheasant Rise should operate as follows;

  • SHORT WORKINGS TO/FROM CHESHAM MOOR

from Chesham Broadway, normal line of route to Red Lion Street and left into Waterside, (via Pheasants Rise if timetabled to do so), right into Bois Moor Road, left into Cresswell Road.

Vice versa for the return journeys.

  • The turning point for journeys terminating/turning at Chesham Moor will be Cresswell Road. Buses should pull into Cresswell Road and then turn by reversing into Appletree Walk. The timetable should only allow sufficient time to turn the bus and head back. However, if you do need to wait please do so in Cresswell Road and not in Bois Moor Road where it can be very congested.

During this period Redline service 76 will not operate the short workings from Chesham Broadway to/from Pheasant Rise. Redline will instead operate service 72 the 09:00 ex Penn Street journey on the temporary timetable.
