Nos. 43, 45 and 47  (from right to left of photo above) are listed buildings, grade II.  Nos. 43 and 45 were probably built in the 16th century and refronted in the 18th or early 19th centuries.  The door to no. 45A is set back behind no. 45 and had its old number (62) on the inside (see photo below) – see 88 High Street for an explanation.

No 45A and the rear part of  no. 47 were part of the hall house with 49 High Street as can be seen from the photo from the back of the houses in the photo gallery below. Until the late 1970s, nos. 45 and 43 were The Daisy Shop, which sold wooden toys and children’s books. For 50 years it only had two owners, Mrs. Compton and Mrs. Bielby.

“Enjoyed our visit to this wonderful interactive museum where you are positively encouraged to touch things!”

“Visited Amersham museum yesterday – lovely place, provides many details on the history of the place. Plenty of cute cafes, pubs and shops around also… not difficult to find free parking nearby. ”

“A well-run, informative and interesting small museum on the main street. It’s mostly volunteer-run and they do a great job in keeping it and making you feel welcome…Check out the herb garden too.”

“Enjoyable film and television location guided walk around Amersham hosted by Amersham Museum – here are the Sun Houses on Highover Park and further up the hill is High & Over.”
