I've just put together a plan of the original settlement of Wolverton north of the Stratford Road. Garnet Street, Cooke Street, Walker Street and parts of Bury Street surived for just about a decade when they were demolished to make way for workshop expansion.
Gas Stret and parts of Bury Street survived until the 1890s.
This information has been compiled from a close study of the 1851 census. The 1841 census has not been much help in this regard as no addresses were recorded. This data has been checked against the 1861 and 1871 censuses.
