The Village of Aylesbury has a rich and storied past dating back well over 100 years! In 1910 it was incorporated as a town and was just another one of hundreds of bustling, growing communities in Saskatchewan. As it was then and continues to be now Aylesbury’s local economy is largely based around the agricultural industry.
Presently there are about 45 residents in the village itself and approximately another 50-75 people who call Aylesbury “their town” but live in the rural surrounding area. As with many smaller Saskatchewan communities time has taken its toll on the population and business opportunities in the village; But that hasn’t taken away from the community spirit that is as strong now as it was in the past for the remaining residents of Aylesbury.
The community hall is a busy place hosting events year ’round from tea parties to dances. The Aylesbury Hotel has been a mainstay in the village for many years, while the “Elephant Lounge” is a great place to meet with friends for coffee or a cold beverage on a hot summer day.
- Non-serviced lots are available within the village limits. Contact the village office for full details on pricing and availability
- Presently there are no “serviced” lots available.
- All town services are conducted on a volunteer basis by community residents
- There is an abundant supply of good clean water available to residents.
- The Don Forsyth Campground is a lovely spot to spend a quiet evening after a long day on the road. The campground is located right on the edge of the village limits and boasts electrical sites and indoor showers and bathrooms. Camping fees are $10.00/night. Drop-ins are definitely welcome! (contact village office for details)
- The Aylesbury Village Hall is available to rent for private or corporate functions. It has a full-service kitchen area, a nice stage and seats about 100 to 125 people. To book your next event please contact Daphne Heinen at 306-734-2965 for details.
- We have an independent postal outlet located in the Aylesbury Hotel. The mail is delivered and sent through Canada Post but the outlet is independently operated. Post office hours are from 11:00 am to 7:00pm daily and closed on weekends.
The Aylesbury Go-Getters are a group of local residents who make things happen within the community! Their enthusiasm for local events is amazing and can be extremely helpful in getting your event off the ground and running smoothly. To contact the “Go-Getters” call Alice Lang at 306-734-2946
The Aylesbury Recreational Board is also a group of local volunteer residents that are involved in all things recreational. To contact the “Rec Board” please call Darrel Werdall at 306-734-2804.

Agriculture and Aylesbury
Saskatchewan based grain company, Mobil Grain along with the Last Mountain Rail railway have begun to once again clean and ship grain out of Aylesbury!
Since purchasing the rail line between Lumsden and Davidson from CN Rail, Last Mountain Rail has developed a number of shipping points along the line which have given local producers a viable option for shipping their products to markets around the world and Aylesbury is now part of that plan.
This is very exciting news for our community and for our local producers as well. Aylesbury was built and thrived as an agricultural community and this new development allows us to hold on to our past while looking to a bright future for Aylesbury!
