Waterside is a hamlet in the parish of Chesham, in Buckinghamshire, England.[1] It is located in the town itself. Historically the name referred to the group of dwellings next to the River Chess in Chesham.

Waterside consists of a mixture of 19th-century houses following the banks of the river Chess. The Metropolitan line link between Baker Street and Chesham runs through this area. Waterside has a fitness centre and a public park known as the Moor. It also comprises several industrial units including a Nestlé bottled water factory situated on the former water cress and trout farm site on Latimer Road.

There is a local community school, Waterside County Combined, which takes children from the age of 3 through to year 6.
