What county is Aylesbury in?

April 2, 2019

Aylesbury is only a short journey from our base in High Wycombe through the beautiful Chiltern Hills AONB and is an area we visit often to assist our customers with their latest home improvement project. But what county is the town of Aylesbury in?

Is Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire?

Yes, Aylesbury is in Buckinghamshire. Despite the county being named after Buckingham, Aylesbury is the county town of Buckinghamshire. The town assumed this title due to Buckingham being in the north of the county, a large inconvenience before the age of modern transport, and in 1889 the Buckinghamshire County Council was founded in the town. Today, Council Hall, a 15-story high-rise tower Grade II listed building in the centre of Aylesbury, serves as the meeting place and headquarters for the council.

Demographic of Aylesbury

The town has seen its population grow from roughly 28,000 in the 1960s to around 72,000 in 2011. This was primarily due to new housing estate developments that were built to ease pressure on London, which is only an hour away from Aylesbury by train.

Architecture of Aylesbury

In 1985, excavations in the town revealed evidence of an Iron Age hillfort thought to date back to 650 BC. The history of Aylesbury includes a visit from the Romans, with the town making up part of their great road network which was created to move troops and equipment from one base to another more efficiently.

The town still features buildings from the Georgian, Tudor and Jacobean eras as a reminder of its storied past. Dating back to 1455, the Kings Head is a favourite for locals and visitors alike. The building features an old cobbled courtyard, beautiful wooden beams and floors and is home to a pub run by The Chiltern Brewery. The King’s Head is also known for stories of 3 ghosts known to haunt the property, one referred to as The Grey Lady is believed to be a barmaid who fell to her death around the turn of the 20th century.

We have recently had our front door and windows replaced by Jack of Glass. They were great. The communication was amazing, we knew every step of the way what was happening and they left place spotless. Our new door and windows have completely changed the house. Very happy and would recommend to anyone.

Jack of glass have recently replaced all my windows efficiently and to a high standard. The price was also very reasonable. The customer service was outstanding along with the services they provide. Highly recommended.

Mr Bennett

I had to replace a small double glazed panel in a window. I though it would be difficult to get anybody interested as it was such a small job. However, Jack of Glass did the work. They visited the house to take the measurements, ordered the replacement glass and fitted it all very efficiently and at a reasonable cost. I will use them again.
