Amersham Old Town- Whielden Street
Whielden Street was named after a local land owner, although the road name changed to Union Street when <a href='http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/722216'>SU9596 : Amersham Old Town: Gilbert Scott Court (1)</a> was built. For many years it was the main A404 road south-west out of Amersham towards High Wycombe. The nearer building with the higher roof is The Saracens Head public house <a title='http://www.thesaracensheadinn.com/' rel='nofollow' href='http://www.thesaracensheadinn.com/'>Link</a><img style='padding-left:2px;' alt='External link' title='External link - shift click to open in new window' src='http://s0.geograph.org.uk/img/external.png' width='10' height='10'/> built in 1538 and a former coaching inn. A snow squall has briefly left a dusting on the roofs.

Amersham- A413 Shardeloes roundabout
Historically this was the point where the two roads leading west out of Amersham Old Town, the High Street and Back Lane, met on the route to the Missendens. Later the High Street became the A413 and Back Lane became School Lane. Later still the Amersham By-pass was built and became the A413 with this roundabout at its western end, with the High Street becoming declassified.

Bin day on Station Road (C) Graham Horn
This is within the Chiltern District Council area, the second tier local authority that is responsible for street waste collection. Councils normally ask that the bins are left by the kerbside, as here, and that they must be completely closed, i.e. not overflowing, unlike here. Landfill waste, usually in black bins, is usually collected once every two weeks, with recycling and/or green waste collected during the opposite week.
However it appears that here the collections are on the same day, so we had lorries going in opposite directions causing quite a bottleneck on this busy road. The white lorry, collecting green waste, is operated by a contractor Verdant.

This photo shows a collection of buses at the Open Day held at Amersham Bus Garage in May 1985. In the foreground is a Leyland Tiger coach for use on Green Line route 788 (Aylesbury - London via Amersham), long since withdrawn. The bus garage dates from 1935 and was operated by London Transport until the 1st January 1970 when it passed to London Country Bus Services. It closed on the 2nd December 1989 and was subsequently demolished, a petrol station and superstore now occupying the site. Its postcode was HP7 0HE.

After the annual September fair, the High Street in Amersham Old Town is completely deserted for just a few minutes. The showmen's trucks have left, the Council sweeps up, and not a car is seen. Rare bliss.
