Jansel Square Bedgrove - a Memory of Aylesbury.

Mum and dad moved into 49 Ingram Avenue on the day of the Great Train Robbery in 1963, when Bedgrove was a new build estate. I was born there in September 1964. My name is Colin Simpson and I have two older sisters Maria and Teresa. We all went to the infant and junior schools. As a very small kid, I can remember Jansel Sq and the Bucks Yeoman pub being built, and was cock-a-hoop on the day that Coco the Clown came to officially open Bishops the supermarket. I got a mug, balloon and all sorts of goodies. I also seem to remember that the Blue Dolphin chip shop had a brilliant reputation locally, and everyone thought they were well posh if they went into the little restaurant at the back and had scampi !!
