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 The gardens and the houses on the left have been replaced by a routine 1960s block, Kingsbury House.

Born in 1961, growing up with my grandparents on Prebendal Ave, great memories. Little shops by the old brook, catching tadpoles, Ceely Rd school also Oak Green - seems like a mystery now. I lived in Aylesbury until I was 16, my grandparents had died. I cannot not find any photos of my past - did I even exist? My (...Read full memory)
