The Aylesbury Vale (or Vale of Aylesbury) is a large area of flat land mostly in Buckinghamshire, Englandmarker. Its boundary is marked by Milton Keynesmarker to the north, Leighton Buzzardmarker and the Chiltern Hillsmarker to the east and south, Thamemarker to the south and Bicestermarker to the west.

The vale is named after Aylesburymarker, the county town of Buckinghamshire. Two other towns lie within the vale and they are Winslowmarker and Buckinghammarker.

The bed of the vale is largely made up of clay that was formed at the end of the ice age. Also at this time the vast underground reserves of water that make the water table higher than average in the Vale of Aylesbury were created.

Today the area is a local government district of northern Buckinghamshire, administered by Aylesbury Vale District Council. This district was formed on 1 April 1974 by the merger of the boroughs of Aylesburymarker and Buckinghammarker, Aylesbury Rural Districtmarker, Buckingham Rural Districtmarker, Wing Rural Districtmarker and part of Winslow Rural Districtmarker.

In the 2001 UKmarker census the population of Aylesbury Vale was 165,748, representing an increase since 1991 of 18,600 people[47404]. About half of those live in the county town Aylesbury.

There are 111 civil parishes: 84 with a parish or town council and a further 27 operating with a Parish meeting, see list of civil parishes in Aylesbury Vale


The district contains no motorway junctions, although the M40 does enter the district for five miles between junctions 8A and 9. Major roads include the A41, A413 and A418- which all meet at Aylesbury. For its size, the district contains relatively few railway stations; most of its stations are in the very south of the district along the London to Aylesbury Line- the major station being Aylesburymarker. At Aylesbury there are connecting services to Princes Risboroughmarker station. In addition, the West Coastmarker and Chiltern main lines both pass through the district, each having a station within the district.
