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 1873
1873 is about the time that Wolverton began to concentrate on Carriage building only. Parts of Bury Street and Gas Street survive but the works continue to expand westward.
