Caption for Aylesbury, St Mary's Church c1955: On the left are Hickman Charity houses; the jettied timber-framed cottages were bought and refurbished in the 1980s, and the timber-framing exposed. On the right is the old Grammar School. It was built from a bequest of 1714 and completed in 1720; the rainwater heads are dated 1719. The stone doorcase with its broken pediment was carved in 1718. As it is now the museum, the interiors can be inspected and admired. In the ground is the modern and immensely popular Roald Dahl Gallery.
