Information on Aylesbury

Aylesbury is the county town of Buckinghamshire and is famous for the Aylesbury Market Square and I do remember the market that was once there now it forms the Civic Centre area and we also like The Kingsbury Square just a bit up from the Market Square . The Market Square was made famous by band Marillion in their song Kayleigh and the Square still has its cobbles. There have been lots of new builds in Aylesbury over the years including The County Hall itself which is a concrete structure and very much from the 1960's and also The Blue Leaning Building very much from the 1980's/90's and there is plenty of older architecture. Aylesbury is near to Stoke Manderville Hospital . Friars is a small music venue in Aylesbury which is famous for the concerts it stages and is renown for having stars that usually would not play such small concerts. Aylesbury was once famous for the Aylesbury duck. Buckinghamshire in general and Aylesbury in particular was once famous for its lace making. Aylesbury has good transport links into London and also to the M40 and onto M25.


For some surveyors Aylesbury is known as the market square area which is cobbled with the clock tower and the difficulty of picking up keys from the estate agents at the top end of the square. For others they note the large concrete Aylesbury Town Hall buildings where the administration is carried out and the library and bus station are on the lower floors. Some know Aylesbury for the music venues of Friars, Aylesbury and the newest theatres. Others remember the blue leaning building that is on the main roundabout as you come into Aylesbury and the original hoo hah when it was put up and the joke that everyone would have to wear sunglasses as they drove past this huge blue leaning building.


Some may know Aylesbury for the Aylesbury Duck, it's a white duck used on the crown shield, or is it a swan? The duck pond where I was told that they used to get the Aylesbury Ducks from (although I do appreciate it may have been something my parents said to keep me quiet as a young boy) has only a few ducks in it now and looks slightly out of place and some may even be able to remember the ducks that were in the Aylesbury shopping Centre for many years which we were never sure were sculpture or art to be looked at or for little people something to climb and gradually conquer all the different sized ducks and birds, there were four from memory. We can only remember the Aylesbury duck and the turkey, answers on a postcard please if you know what the other two were or if indeed there were more than two. T he ducks ranged in height from about one metre to two metres, the Aylesbury duck being the smallest and the turkey being the biggest!


Whilst recently carrying out a survey in Aylesbury we drove past a garden which much to my amusement had one of these ducks which had long since disappeared from the shopping centre when it was modernised many modernisations ago. There sitting proudly in one of the gardens was this white duck that I climbed many, many years ago. Here we will refer you to the testimonial we have on the website where it mentions the surveyor that tore over the building like Spiderman, that's me and I probably got my skills from climbing the Aylesbury Ducks and here's a picture of one!

Building Survey Aylesbury

If you are planning to book a building survey on a property you are purchasing in Aylesbury or the surrounding area then we would like to assure you that we always send a suitably qualified and experienced surveyor to carry out the job. This ensures that you get expert advice on any issues that we may find with the property we are surveying. All our surveyors are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors - RICS - and are Independent Building Surveyors. Being 'independent' means that they are working for you and you alone; they do not work for a mortgage company or an estate agents, so they have your best interests at heart.

All our survey contain lots of images, clearly showing any problems that we have identified at the property such as woodworm, rising damp or cracking to the walls. We also use sketches in our survey which are aimed at helping you to understand how certain areas are constructed or to help show more clearly a problem that we have identified. You will also find lots of definitions of any building terminology that we may use in our survey, as we firmly believe in 'Plain English' and really want you to fully understand what we are saying in the survey report.
