Stony Stratford High Street - Properties & People
The High Street in Stony Stratford has seen many and varied residents and businesses through the last century. In 2019, one of our volunteers, Helen Aylott, decided to research the past occupants of the buildings along the street.
Having spent a good many years in the town, Helen initially drew from her own memories and those of her friends. One of her friends, Pam Egan, kindly shared research that she had done in the past and so the project grew. Using sources such as Kelly’s Directory, local books, town guides and newspapers, Helen managed to develop an amazing record of the town’s business community, along with interesting stories and memories.
Of course, the town continues to develop and businesses continue to move and change. This project took us only as far as the middle of 2020. No doubt there will need to be an update in the years to come. In the meantime, enjoy a browse through Stony’s past – and if you have memories of these or other businesses in the High Street, please let us know.
