Stone Buckinghamshire

Stone Buckinghamshire – A pretty little village situated near to the town of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire (Bucks), Stone has a population of about 2,500 and has been in existence since Saxon times (being called Stanes in the Doomsday Book). Stone lies on the A418 road between Aylesbury and Thame (Oxfordshire) and is one of the many villages which surround the town of Aylesbury, other include Stoke Mandeville, Bierton, West Turville and Aston Clinton. Stone was formerly the location of an asylum called St John’s Hospital, this was closed down in the early 1990’s, and the land developed for new housing.
