Spotlight on Feltham - our estate agent’s view. At first glance Feltham may appear to be just another Greater London suburb but scratch the surface and you’ll find a rich history, culture, open spaces and a community where residents overwhelmingly identify their home county as "Middlesex". A devastating fire back in 1634 destroyed most of the parish buildings but the foundations of St Dunstan’s Church (rebuilt in 1801) date back to the 12th century. First recorded in the Domesday Book as Felda, then Feldham meaning “home in a field”, Feltham has rural roots that continued with market gardening well into the twentieth century.

Previous winners of the award have implemented successful town centre development strategies and have attracted inward investment to the town. Slough, this year’s winner is no exception having developed extensively over the past few years to create an improved environment with better facilities for all.

Think of the phrase “Best Kept Village” and you immediately picture brightly coloured flowers and bunting but there’s much more to it than hanging baskets and summer fetes. Over and above neat flower beds, judges look for evidence of community spirit. Chalfont St Peter clearly offers all this and more, having won Best Kept Village in 2014 and 2015’s Tindall Cup, (a “cup winners cup” open only to villages that won their category the previous year). Visitors to the village find it welcoming, with mainly small, independent shops and a strong tradition of customer service.
