Amersham is a busy commuter station in the south of Buckinghamshire. It is the terminus of the London Underground Metropolitan line and is served by mainline trains on the London Marylebone to Aylesbury route. Counting London Underground and National Rail passengers, the station is used for over 4.5 million journeys per year. Amersham station was opened in 1892 when the Metropolitan Railway was extended, kick-starting the development of new suburbs to the north of London. Because the station was built about a mile from the original market town, the area around the station became known locally as Amersham on the Hill or New Town, with the pre-existing settlement known as Old Amersham or simply Old Town. These names are still used today by people who live nearby and the areas still have distinct characteristics.
