Books by Author Marion Hill

Marion Hill has lived and worked in the Milton Keynes area since 1972. After 23 years as a teacher – including ten at Stantonbury Campus where both her sons were educated – Marion started writing the first of 18 books based on the lives of ordinary people and their extraordinary experiences, inspired by the vast archive of memorabilia, diaries, letters and photographs at Living Archive. No less than eleven of her books focus on the various communities, eras and unique events that constitute the new city’s rich heritage.

Some of Marion’s books focus on particular areas of Milton Keynes: such as Bigger Brighter Better, The Story of the Original CMK, Calverton Manor Farm and Bradwell Then and Now.

Or they are about particular times in Milton Keynes’ history – Bletchley Park People, Where the Lines Meet, Memories of Milton Keynes, Milton Keynes Through Time

Published in November 2012 is Milton Keynes Then and Now (The History Press)about the Milton Keynes city area from 150 million years ago to the modern day. Marion’s taster for this book – What you might not know about Milton Keynes – can be viewed here
