Profile: Aylesbury constituency is tightly drawn around the prosperous town of Aylesbury itself to the North, but in the South widens to include a swathe of countryside around the Chiltern Hills (Coombe Hill, the highest point in the Chilterns, lies just South West of Wendover, near the Prime Minister`s country residence of Chequers), including small market towns and villages like Wendover, Stokenchurch, Great Missenden and Princes Risborough. The seat was once the pocket borough of the Rothschild family, but has been Tory since 1923. Aylesbury itself tends towards the Liberal Democrats, but the picturesque semi-rural commuter towns and villages to the South vote reliably Conservative.
