Thrifty Van Hire Aylesbury

Aylesbury is the county town of Buckinghamshire in south east of England. The population of Aylesbury was roughly 65200 in 2001. Aylesbury is also part of the London commuter belt. With it being so close to London, you could drive a van hire from Thrifty Car Rental to get to work.

The town name is Anglo-Saxon, though excavations in the town centre in the early 1990s found an Iron Age hill fort dating from around 650BC. The town is sited on an outcrop of Portlandian limestone, which accounts for its prominent position in the surrounding landscape, which is largely clay.

Aylesbury was a major market town in Anglo-Saxon times, famous as the burial place of Saint Osyth, whose shrine attracted many pilgrims. The Early English parish church of St. Mary is built over remains of the Saxon crypt. At the Conquest, the king took the manor of Aylesbury for himself, and it is listed as a royal manor in the Domesday Book, 1086.

The town's population has doubled since the 1960s mainly due to new housing developments, including many London overspill housing estates, built to ease the pressure on the capital, and to move people from the crowded inner city slums to more favourable locations. Indeed Aylesbury, to a greater extent than many English market towns, saw substantial areas of its own heart demolished in the 1950s and 1960s as 16th and 18th century houses were pulled down to make way for commercial developments.

The town centre has many pubs and bars, along with some nightclubs, and Friday and Saturday nights can be lively. The local newspaper is called The Bucks Herald. The local radio station is called Mix 96. One of the more prominent buildings in Aylesbury is the "Blue Leanie" office block, home to Halifax Bank of Scotland.

When first built it was thought to be a potential hazard to passing motorists, due to the sun reflecting off its large mirrored surface. As a result a line of trees was planted alongside the main road to prevent dazzling. The town is served by Aylesbury railway station, which is the present terminus of passenger services from London Marylebone. With a van hire from Thrifty Car Rental, you too could enjoy the beauty of this town.
