Wycombe purchased the brewery in 1775. He, and his heirs, expanded the business by buying a number of local public houses during the next 150 years. In 1929 Gerrard Weller sold the brewery and 133 tied public houses to Benskins of Watford for £360,000, a move that led to the end of brewing in Amersham. In addition to brewing, tanning, lace manufacture and brickmaking all had a prominent place in the manufacturing past of the town. During World War II, the Radiochemical Centre, a scientific research establishment, arrived in the town. This became Amersham International, then Amersham plc, and now, after a number of changes of ownership and name, is part of GE Healthcare.

In 1958 the companies reached an agreement which allowed them both to provide services in all parts of the town. When the National Bus Company (National Bus Company (UK)) was formed in 1969, its London Country Bus Services subsidiary took responsibility for many routes, including Green Line Coaches cross-London services which operated to distant destinations such as Watford, Luton and Amersham. A coach station was opened by Southdown in 1931 on the A23 at County Oak, near Lowfield Heath: it was a regular stopping point for express coaches between London and towns on the Sussex coast. This traffic started to serve Gatwick when the airport began to grow, however. Wikipedia:Watford Commons:Category:Watford DMOZ:Regional Europe United Kingdom England Hertfordshire Watford

85 in North Carolina 85 , 73 (I-73), & 74 (Interstate 74 in North Carolina) and is served by the Piedmont Triad International Airport. Long known as one of the primary manufacturing and transportation hubs of the southeastern United States, the Triad is also an important educational and cultural region and occupies a prominent place in the history of the American Civil Rights Movement. The Triad is not to be confused with the "Triangle (Research Triangle)" region (Raleigh (Raleigh, North Carolina)-Durham (Durham, North Carolina)-Chapel Hill (Chapel Hill, North Carolina)), directly to the east. As of 2008, the Piedmont Triad has an estimated population of 1,603,101 making it the 30th largest CSA (Combined Statistical Area) metropolitan area in the United States. ''Source: US Census Annual Estimate of Population Table CBSA-EST2007-02'' Industry and manufacturing The Triad area is notable for large textile, tobacco, and furniture corporations. The Triad remains a national center for textile manufacturing, represented by corporations including Hanes based in Winston-Salem (Winston-Salem, North Carolina), and International Textile Group, based in Greensboro (Greensboro, North Carolina). Tobacco remains a prominent crop in the Triad's rural areas and many tobacco companies like Lorillard Tobacco Company of Greensboro (Greensboro, North Carolina), and Reynolds American, based in Winston-Salem (Winston-Salem, North Carolina), call the Piedmont Triad home. Numerous furniture manufacturers are also headquartered in the Triad area, especially in the cities of High Point (High Point, North Carolina) (deemed the "Furniture Capital of the World"), Thomasville (Thomasville, North Carolina) (known as the "Chair City"), and Lexington (Lexington, North Carolina). The furniture and textile industries have in turn spawned large trucking, logistics, and warehousing businesses in the area. Popular brands like "Thomasville" and "Lexington" are derived from the names of these cities. Recently, however, many furniture and tobacco factories have been closing and or laying off (laid off) workers across the region in response to escalating industrial globalization.

Technology and biotechnology After many of the old industries in the area began to die out, many Piedmont Triad cities began encouraging technological businesses to move into the Triad. Winston-Salem (Winston-Salem, North Carolina), for instance, founded within its downtown the Piedmont Triad Research Park, a highly interactive, master-planned innovation community developed to support life science and information technology research and development. Dell, Inc. in the early 2000s struck a deal with local officials allowing for the construction of a new computer assembly plant near the Triad city of Kernersville (Kernersville, North Carolina). Additionally, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, the largest institution of higher learning in the region, and North Carolina A&T State University have joined forces to establish the Gateway University Research Park, a technology-based entity which will focus its efforts on a host of biological, life, and environmental science research projects. Upon full build out of the project, it is expected to be housed by two , owner Carl Pohlad almost sold the Twins to North Carolina businessman Don Beaver, who would have moved the team to the Piedmont Triad (Greensboro (Greensboro, North Carolina) – Winston-Salem (Winston-Salem, North Carolina) – High Point (High Point, North Carolina)) area. The defeat of a referendum for a stadium in North Carolina and a lack of interest in building a stadium for the Twins in Charlotte (Charlotte, North Carolina) killed the deal.
