More about this scene


Caption for Aylesbury, Kingsbury Square 1901: Kingsbury Square is the market place for the oldest part of the town; this grew up around the church, whose tower can be seen beyond the roofs. The square is actually triangular, with encroachment on the east side, and still recognisable a century after this view was taken. Until it was paved, it was often knee-deep in mud. The domestic elements have long gone - shops and pubs now occupy all the ground floors. The gardens and the houses on the left have been replaced by a routine 1960s block, Kingsbury House.
