Formerly an isolated hamlet on Wycombe Heath, Hazlemere's growth began with the arrival of a turnpike road (now the A404), followed in the mid-19th century by the railway with a station in nearby High Wycombe. Ribbon development during the 1930s based on indiscriminate building changed the village's rural character when it became a suburb of High Wycombe. The 1960s and 1970s saw a big surge in planned housing developments. An active Residents' Association helped establish the leisure and sports facilities, including a library and community centre opened in 1976. In 1986 Hazlemere gained its own parish council. Unless otherwise stated the photos were taken by Barry Hunt in August 2015 and he supplied the captions.
