Aylesbury, Westmorland Avenue c.1965

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.

Memories of Aylesbury


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)

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)

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.
