Cadmore End

Cadmore End is a small quiet hamlet between Lane End and Stokenchurch. Unfortunately when the M40 motorway was built it divided the village into two, but this does not seem to detract from the beauty around it.
As Cadmore End is conveniently situated to Heathrow Airport via the M4 Motorway, we have our share of pilots living here. Most families work very locally or commute to London by train from High Wycombe.
There are many walks nearby including the old 'woolpack track' to Hambleden and the Thames and we get people taking the 'walks from the car' at weekends.
The Smock windmill which has been restored and used as a 'cottage' can be seen over the trees from this track. This was used in the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

There are old brickworks on one side of Cadmore Common but they have now been disused for many years.
The social life revolves around the village green cricket club, The Blue Flag and The Ship public houses, the church and school.
