Denham Lane
Warren Farm.
Warren Farm Quarry. This appears to be active for the extraction of sand and hoggin. It is also partly a traveller site and operates for landfill.
Paccar Scout Camp. This dates from 1938 when an anonymous donor provided the money for its purchase by The Scout Association. It was used for scouts to camp until in 1970 Greater London Middlesex West took over the site as its County campsite and Training Centre. In 2008, following a donation of £500,000 from the PACCAR Foundation, the site name was changed to PACCAR Scout Camp from Chiltern Heights Scout Camp.
Mopes Farm house. This is a 16th timber-framed house. Successively some well known actors have lived there. It is said now to be in a state of disrepair.
Barn. This is early 18th timber framed and weather boarded, and with a central wagon entry. The south bay is part of 18th Mopes Farm Cottage
Barn, 18th barn, timber framed.
Gerrards Cross Golf Course. The course was established in 1922, in the grounds of Chalfont Park and the remains of the ha-ha can be seen near the 18th hole. It was opened in 1922 but the layout has changed partly due to road building in the area.
