Wolverton Blogs

When I become aware of them I do put up links to blogs concerning Wolverton and area.

The most recent is Talk About Wolverton which has connections with the Living Archive and is open to contributors.

I have also featured Matthew Taylor's blog MMT in MK. Matthew (I think) was brought up in Wolverton and writes a regular and lively account of his doings, occasionally touching upon Wolverton.

Narrow Boat Albert is written by Steve and Maggie Parkin and is an excellent blog, with first rate photos, about his comings and goings on our waterways. There are occasional visits to our part of the world and the reports are of interest.

Wolverton 152 is a blog about plans to build a model of Wolverton Station and the accompanying railway lines. One to watch with interest as the project unfolds.

I first came across Iqbal Aalam when he wrote an assessment of the Agora. Iqbal Aalam is an architect who uses his blog to reassess various recent architectural projects after some years of use. He has written about Wolverton's Agora and Stony Stratford's Cofferige Close. He has also touched on other Milton Keynes projects.

Down and Out in Milton Keynes is a newish blog written by a New Zealander who has recently come to live in these parts. There are some very insightful and thoughtful observations here from a woman trying to come to terms with her new environment.

A Darker Trantor is a very unusual blog. The author travels to derelict buildings and photographs them and records his impressions. He has of course visited the abandoned workshops at Wolverton.
