OIL ON CANVAS: ALDBURY Superb early - mid 19th Century oil paining showing the Pond & Stocks Of Aldbury (Stock Road, Aldbury, Hertfordshire). Appearing in the Domesday Book as ‘Aldeberie’, modern day Aldbury, nestling in the lee of the Chilterns below Ashridge, near Tring, is largely unchanged from the days when straw-plaiting provided a living for many of its residents. The medieval stocks and whipping post still stand by the duckpond, the old, timber-framed houses remain much the same as does the 18th century Greyhound public house This looks across the pond to where the road runs north to Ivinghoe and Pitstone. Original Gilt Frame, Some crazing to the oil with wear commensurate with age).
