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.

The blog is a way of recording and publishing my notes and inviting comments and revisions of my memories from others.
