  • The fourth image in this set of 4 shows the view looking east along the Bletchley-Bedford Marston Vale Railway Line. Bow Brickhill can be seen to the right and Caldecotte on the left.

    You can just about make out Wavendon and Woburn Sands through the haze in the distance.

    The road you can see which runs left to right across the image is now Brickhill Street (V10).

    The circular objects in the bottom left are the sewage disposal works near Fenny Stratford. This is now the site of a large warehouse at Fenny Lock Trading Estate, next to the new A5D road.

  • The Third of the 4 pictures in this set shows Water Eaton and the view is from the south-west.

    Cornelia Close can be seen towards the bottom left.

    The undeveloped land in the middle of the image would eventually be part of Tiffany Close.

    The road running diagonally from the centre of the bottom edge to the middle of the left-hand edge would become Magenta Close.

    All three roads would become linked by the curve of Hunter Drive.

    The square, grassy area in the top right is the sports field of The Premier Academy.

  • The second image in this set of 4 shows Galley Hill. Please note the image has inadvertently been published back-to-front so shows a mirror image of the estate.

    The photograph was taken from the south-west.

    The road which goes from the bottom right-hand corner to towards the top of the image is Galley Hill.

    The building complex at the bottom of the image is St Mary & St Giles C of E School.

    The street beyond the school is Clailey Court. The one behind that is Cottesloe Court.

    Towards the top left is Lamva Court and towards the top right is Creslow Court.

    If you look it up on a map, remember the image above is a mirror image.

  • The first image of this set of 4 is of Simpson Village looking towards the north-east. The Open University at Walton Hall can be seen in the background.

    Today, Tinkers Bridge and Woughton Park would be seen on the left-hand side of this view.
