The King’s Head, Aylesbury

Nominated by: Terry Bloxham

The King’s Head public house in Aylesbury has a long history, both shrouded in myth and in historical fact. The Great Hall contains stained glass that reflects the county’s and the country’s troubled history during the period that has come to be known as ‘The Wars of the Roses’. During this conflict between allegiances to the Plantegent dynastic houses of York and Lancaster, the country on both a national and local level, found it necessary to declare for one side or the other. The King’s Head’s Great Hall windows contains glass with decoration that suggests it was allying itself with the Lancastrian cause.

The King’s Head was nominated by Terry Bloxham, Hon Secretary of the Bucks Historical Association
