The Little Streets - an Overview

The Little Streets was the name given to a group of Wolverton's first streets which survived into the 20th century. It is likely that the term only originated after the 1890s when larger houses were built westward to Windsor Street.

The were four of them: Creed Street, Ledsam Street, Glyn Square and Young Street. The streets were built in the 1840s. Two aerial photographs here provide a good enough description. The top photo shows them at the centre-left edge, and the lower photo was taken from the new Gables Tower at the time of demolition.
