More about this scene


Caption for Aylesbury, Westmorland Avenue c1965: Westmorland Avenue is one of the roads laid out for residential development between Tring Road and Wendover Road. These early 1950s houses are still pairs of semis with a mix of hipped and gabled roofs, the latter with rendered upper floors; they also have the metal-framed 'Crittal' windows which only went out of favour in the 1960s. Our tour of Aylesbury peters out amid the post-war expansion to accommodate London's overspill.

I spent most of my childhood from age 5 - 16 living at 25 Westmorland Avenue (family was the Prices). It was such a lovely street and we had such wonderful neighbours. I hope to get back to England one day and to visit the area.
