Volume notes


Aylesbury is the county town of affluent Buckinghamshire and the Dairy Maid is set on the busy ring road around the town. Customers come from nearby residential houses or passing trade – the car park opens directly onto the A4157. To increase trade even more, there is a small parade of shops next door too, so this is the ideal stop-off point.
