This detailed map covers an area that is now at the northern end of Milton Keynes. Our main map covers the centre of the new railway town of Wolverton that had sprung up around the original station on the LNWR main line, including carriage shed and part of the carriage works. St George the Martyr's church is in the middle of the development. However, as Moira Courtman tells us, Wolverton was still suffering from the decision in 1864 to stop locomotive building and maintenance here and move it to Crewe. Many staff had to move north but this was more than compensated by others transferring to Wolverton from the Saltley carriage works, which was being run down. More space was needed for them and so New Bradwell was developed about half a mile to the east. Our map also includes this, including St James's church and station (on the Newport Pagnell branch). Other features include the Grand Junction Canal, Blue Bridge, Stonebridgehouse Farm, Corner Pin. By way of contrast, on the reverse we include more than half of the 1938 Revisaion, showing how the communities had developed. Striking here is he far more extensive railway layout, with the main line (now LMSR) diverted round to the east, with a new Wolverton station. As usual the fine detail (including tracks, signal posts etc) makes this fascinating to transport historians.
