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.

More back alleys
Back Alley between Cambridge Street and Windsor Street c. 1956
This view is looking north towards Church Street. Of interest here is the garages starting to appear on the Windsor Street side. car ownership was just developing in the 1950s and garages were required. Paint quality was not to today's standard and protection from the elements was considered to be essential.
