Caption for Aylesbury, Parson's Fee c1965: Parsons Fee leads south-west from Market Square past Prebendal House, the home of John Wilkes, the radical MP for Aylesbury from 1757 to 1764, and behind high brick walls. The lane descends to Castle Street, from where this vies was taken; we see St Osyths, a good brick house of 1700 with earlier timber-framed ranges, and the farmhouse to the Prebendal. Indeed, the great 16th-century tithe barn survives nearby.
