  • The first image in this set of 4 is of Woolstone Village. The view is looking north along Newport Road.

    The old school can be seen in the foreground with The Barge pub just beyond (painted white) on the corner of Mill Lane.

    Linford Lane branches off to the right just past The Barge pub.

    What looks like a single-storey farm building at the very top edge of the image would be the site of Gulliver’s Land today.

    Just below that, the green band which runs from the right-hand edge of the image across to the left follows the current route of Childs Way (H6).

  • The second image in this set of 4 is Broughton Village (please note the image is shown back-to-front).

    St Lawrence’s Church can be seen on the right with the Old Rectory behind it.

    The Manor House is hiding in the trees, just right of centre.

    If you look very closely, you can just about make out the old-fashioned red telephone box that remains in the village to this day.

  • The fourth image in this set of 4 shows Kiln Farm trading estate. The view is from the south-west,

    The road that crosses the middle of the image is Pitfield, with Burners Lane branching away from the viewer. The road in the upper left is Millers Way (H2).

    The single tall tree behind the building would have stood close to Grinley Cottages, which were presumably demolished to make way for the new city.

  • The third picture in this set of 4 shows the foundations of what would become Challenge House on Sherwood Drive in Bletchley.
