Aylesbury, St Mary's Church And Cross 1927

More about this scene


Caption for Aylesbury, St Mary's Church And Cross 1927: The main entrance to the churchyard where Church Street turns left to become Parsons Fee is distinguished by a pair of elegant early 18th-century gate piers in fine-jointed red brick surmounted by stone urn finials.
