More about this scene


Caption for Whitchurch, Oving Road C1955: Moving east, the route passes through Whitchurch on its way back to Aylesbury. Whitchurch is a long village with many fine houses and cottages, and also the remains of Hugh of Bolbec's early 12th-century earthwork castle. Oving Road runs east from the High Street; this view is taken beyond its junction with Market Hill looking west, showing the mix of building materials found in the village: timber-framing, brick, local crumbly limestone, thatch, tiles and slate.

I lived in the row of cottages on Market Hill from 1943 to 1944.
