Looking over Chesham from Milton Road (on the hill), part of Pond Park

Pond Park (originally called North Chesham) is an area of Chesham in Buckinghamshire, England, built on the hills to the north of the town starting in 1891.

Churches[edit]

The first nonconformist congregation in Pond Park met at Friendship Hall and was a branch of the Congregational Church in Chesham. They subsequently held services at Pond Park Community Hall for a short time. The Baptist Hivings Free Church was built later.

An Anglican congregation also met at William Durrant's School (closed 2002).

Recreation Grounds[edit]

Pond Park has a number of recreation grounds, and a small parade of shops. Little Spring Primary School, based in the area, was formed in September 2002 from an amalgamation of Greenway Infant School and the William Durrant School (formerly an 8–12 school).[1] The school has approximately 200 pupils aged between 4 and 11 years.[2] The school was named after William J Durrant of Chesham who died in 1954.
