Gerrards CrossGerrards Cross
is a large village
. It is located in the very south of the county, near the border with Middlesex
, south of Chalfont St Peter
The village name is fairly new, when compared to other villages that surround it. It is named after the Gerrard family that, in the early Seventeenth century, owned a manor here. At that time it was a hamlet in the parish of Chalfont St Peter.
Today Gerrards Cross is a very upmarket village in the commuter belt of London, and house prices are extremely high here. It is linked by rail to London Marylebone Station.
