Aston Clinton, Buckinghamshire

Buckinghamshire

Aston Clinton (Aylesbury, 3 m., Wendover, 3 m.) is an important village. S. W. of it is Aston Clinton House, one of the numerous possessions of the Rothschild family in this district, on the site of the old Manor House. The church is a large building in a spacious churchyard, which is attractive from its sheltering fringe of fine elms. The lofty Dec. chancel is the best feature in the church, which has also two aisles and W. tower. The Dec. sedilia are remark­ ably ornate, as is the piscina in N. wall, with two figures at each of the upper corners. The pillars between nave and aisles are alternately rounded and octagonal, but this part of the building is spoilt by the number and want of harmony in the windows of the aisle.
