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.

Stratford Road Shops II
Number 30 Private residence
Number 31 Richardson and Grace - Grocery
Number 31 F W Stobie - Furniture I can't recall what was at Number 34 unless it was the Pram dealers I referred to earlier. At the far left of the picture, at Number 36, Montague Watts, Dentist. It is still a dental surgery.
Number 37 was the medical practice of Dr Lawrence and others. It was largely a Stony Stratford based practice. Before the war the practice included Dr Habgood whose son became Archbishop of York.
Number 40, still a double-fronted shop, was Kellers - fruiterer and grocer.
Number 42, presntly an Estate Agent was occupied by A A Day - Ironmonger who also sold paint and wallpaper - an early entrant into the DIY market.
