The Aylesbury Vale (or Vale of Aylesbury) is a large area of flat land largely to be found in Buckinghamshire, England. Its boundary is marked by Milton Keynes to the north, Leighton Buzzard and the Chiltern Hills to the east and south, Thame to the south and Bicester to the west.


The vale is named after Aylesbury, the county town of Buckinghamshire, which stands at its centre. Two other towns lie within the vale and they are Winslow and Buckingham.


The bed of the vale is largely made up of clay, that was formed at the end of the ice age. Also at this time the vast underground reserves of water that make the water table higher than average in the Vale of Aylesbury were created.


Today the area is known as a local government district in north Buckinghamshire, administered by Aylesbury Vale District Council. This district was formed on April 1, 1974 by the merger of the boroughs of Aylesbury and Buckingham, Aylesbury Rural District, Buckingham Rural District, Wing Rural District and part of Winslow Rural District.


In the 2001 UK census the population of Aylesbury Vale was 165,748, representing an increase since 1991 of 18,600 people[1] (http://www.statistics.gov.uk/census2001/profiles/11ub.asp). Most of those live in the county town Aylesbury.

Aylesbury: Information from Answers.com (1905 words)
Aylesbury was declared the county town of Buckinghamshire in 1529 by King Henry VIII: Aylesbury Manor was among the many properties belonging to Thomas Boleyn the father of the infamous Anne Boleyn and it is rumoured that the change was made by the king in order to curry favour with the holders of the manor.
Aylesbury's population was expected to increase between 2003 and 2005 with a new housing estate designed to cater for 8000 people on the north side of the town, sandwiched between the A41 (Akeman Street) and the A413, and the expansion of Fairford Leys village.
Aylesbury Town Council is the parish council for the town.
