Aylesbury is Buckinghamshire’s county town and has a rich history. Excavations in the 1980s uncovered an Iron Age hill fort, revealing it was a stronghold of the Ancient Britons. In the Middle Ages, it became a major trading centre owing to its location on the Roman road Akeman Street. During the Civil War it was a supporter of the Parliamentary cause. Today, buildings from Tudor, Jacobean and Georgian times bear witness to its history.


In ‘Aylesbury History Tour’, author Charles Close takes readers on a tour around the town’s streets and buildings, showing how its famous landmarks used to look and how they have altered over the years, as well as exploring some of the lesser-known sights and hidden corners. With the help of a handy location map, readers are invited to discover for themselves the history and the changing face of Aylesbury.
