Aylesbury, St Mary's Church, The Chancel 1897

More about this scene


Caption for Aylesbury, St Mary's Church, The Chancel 1897: This interior view of St Mary's Church looks east into the chancel past the central crossing under the tower. The Early English 13th-century Gothic-style lancets were inserted by Scott, who removed a large 15th-century east window. The interior has again been drastically re-ordered, including the construction of a stage at the west end from which the fine Norman font emerges incongruously. The 1978 repairs, though, stripped the grey cement wash off the columns and walls, so the interior is now a little brighter.

Memories of Aylesbury


I was born in Buckingham Road in 1962 and lived in the same house (no.225) until I left for North Wales in 1985. I have many happy memories of living there, going to the Primary and Junior schools in Dunsham Lane and playing in the Alfred Rose Park, especially playing the Pitch and Putt golf (...Read full memory)

The days when you could let your children out to play and not worry. We used to sneak up in the hole in the fence to play in the big oak tree that sits above the shelter. It was our camp and was called the Five Oaks. We took food and drink, pinned pictures on the tree it was great We used to spy on Old Mr George Woodford (...Read full memory)

Looking for any information on a Mary Frances Reed or the Reed family whom we think lived in Aylesbury at the time. Name might have been spelled Reid. This is for genealogical purposes

Pub was the Rockwood, not Rockwell. I worked at Pearks Stores, 56, Kingsbury, from 1958 to 1964. My first manager was Cllr. Eric Bentley, an 8th Army veteran. He moved down to the West Country and opened a hotel. Kingsbury was then the Bus station with buses going to such places as Windsor, Northampton, Bedford etc.
