We take a trip down memory lane 60 years to Aylesbury Market Square in 1953.

With Aylesbury’s Market Square during Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee featured this week we take a somewhat more recent look back 60 years to 1953 as the town joined in the national Coronation celebrations for Queen Elizabeth. Thousands of people lined the town centre to enjoy a procession of floats.
