Throughout the 1850s Wolverton wanted to expand, needed to expand, but the Radcliffe Trustees were unwilling to sell any more farm land. Accordingly, the L&NWR purchased land down the hill from the neighbouring manor of Stantonbury, owned by Earl Spencer in the 1950s. New Bradwell was born.
In 1860 the Trustees finally relented and release land to the west of Bury Street. The northern portion was used for workshops and south of the Stratford Road was used for residential and commercial development. Unlike the earlier development which was undertaken entirely by the railway company, the new building lots were to be sold for private development.
There is a plan from 1861 in the Buckinghamshire Archives which I reproduce here in four sections.
They can be read from left to right, or east to west.
The first part here shows the pre-existing buildings in grey shading - Creed Street, St George's, the recently-built Lodging House on the site that was later the Church Institute, the School Buildings, the Royal Engineer and the end of Bury Street.
