Bond in Bucks
Now it can be told… Ian Fleming, author of the mega-selling James Bond books spent much of his lifetime in Buckinghamshire… visiting the car-makers at Newport Pagnell, the Codebreakers at Bletchley Park, secretly training his ‘Red Indian’ commandos on a disused farm near Amersham, and later golfing with Jock Campbell, the ‘godfather’ of Milton Keynes - ISBN: 9780954143282
A thousand years of history lies behind the rolling parkland of Newport Pagnell’s green ‘oasis’. From an ancient burial ground to Civil War defences, horse-racing festivals, first-class cricket, an Observation Post in WWII and a railway train that never arrived. ISBN 97809541432 68
Cromwell’s Garrison Town
The ‘hidden history’ of Newport Pagnell, a Front Line fortress for Cromwell in the Civil War where 1500 men lived out a violent and often brutal life, where the controversial General sent his oldest son, and where many of his troops mustered on the eve of Naseby, one of our nation’s most important battles. ISBN: 97809541432 51
Salmons & Sons and Aston Martin
Two centuries of an extraordinary contribution of design and ingenuity to the British transport industry from a market town that has brought the UK everything from horse-led dog carts, to horse-drawn carriages, body parts for early motor vehicles and the sportscar phenomenon that is Aston Martin.
