This blog is about Wolverton in Buckinghamshire,more particularly about its past, ancient and nearly modern. The area covered by the former Wolverton UDC is covered in this blog, and therefore includes Stony Stratford and New Bradwell. I take as my end point the period when the new 19th century railway town was absorbed into the newer development of Milton Keynes. The blog is a way of recording and publishing my notes and inviting comments and revisions of my memories from others.

Wolverton Works 1860
By 1860 the northern streets have been removed, as have the Bury Street shops. This was the decade of the McConnell Engines. The watercolour below is by Phillip Webb.
