History is not just about events. It’s about people, their experiences, their triumphs, the way they live their lives and how they tell their stories. ‘Where the Lines Meet’ is a collection of still images, documents, and 43 oral history audio recordings collecting the memories of people who have worked on, or used the railway at Bletchley. The project was funded by the Local Heritage Initiative in conjunction with Living Archive, Milton Keynes, to document the Railway Heritage of Bletchley. The railway has been an important part of the growth of Bletchley throughout 170 years. Many people moved here, worked here, and generations of families have been involved with the railway in some form or other. The information for this project was gathered by local people using local resources and materials provided by Bletchley Community Heritage Initiative and Living Archive.
