The Parish of Chenies sits on the border of Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.  It is actually in Buckinghamshire although our postal addresses are Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire.

The village is situated about 20 miles north-west of London, just a couple of miles outside the M25 London orbital motorway.

The Parish has the village at its core with manor house, church, village green and school.  To the south, facing a wide verge known as the Green Sward, extends a line of period houses and cottages, the Bedford Arms Hotel and Red Lion, Baptist Chapel and cricket club. To the north sloping down to the river Chess are further period houses and cottages, Dodds Mill and Mill Farm.  This part of the village is known as Chenies Bottom.

Less well known is the fact that the Parish extends west as far as Latimer Park – beyond the Latimer cross roads including farm and woodland on the south side of the Chess Valley.  Also included is a finger of land on the west side of Green Street, Chorleywood which extends about 2 miles southwards taking in Newhouse Farm then following Old Shire Lane as far as Philipshill and Shortenills Woods, almost as far as Chalfont St Giles itself.

According to the 2011 Census there were 106 households and 246 residents in the Parish.

We are fortunate to have a network of public footpaths and bridleways on our doorstep covering literally miles of countryside and woodland within the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  The river Chess, a rare chalk stream, is a significant feature within this landscape.
