Product description


Previous editions of "The Guide to Commuterland" have established it as the indispensable 'one-stop-shop' for anyone looking for a home within commuting range of London. Now it has been fully revised and updated to take account of current house prices, new developments and changes within commuterland communities. The structure of the book remains as before, following each of the railway lines that radiate out from London's termini, station by station, together with their branches and spurs, starting with the Liverpool Street to Southend line and working round the capital's radius to finish with the line from Victoria to Herne Bay and Canterbury. In total, over 1200 towns and villages in Southern England are described, from Frinton and Ipswich in the east to Bristol and Bath in the west.In each case there is a summary of the types of property to be found and a representative range of prices is given, together with a succinct summary of the pros and cons of each community in terms of local facilities and amenities and social make-up.

In short, this book is a godsend for house hunters who can quickly narrow down their search to focus on the areas that are most likely to meet their needs without ever leaving the comfort of an armchair. This title is published to tie in with a major, week-long promotion in the "Sunday" and "Daily Telegraph". It features: house prices in every category, from period cottages to modern estates; commuting data - journey times, ticket prices, train frequencies; information on schools, shops, civic and natural amenities, local societies and activities; and, thumbnail portraits of each community that will help readers decide if they are likely to 'fit in'.
