The construction of the M1 (part 1)

Film captures the construction at Newport Pagnell

Between 1958 and 1959 there was great upheaval in North Bucks – particularly around Newport Pagnell – as the M1 motorway was constructed. Local film-maker, Bernard Tompkins, captured this important moment in time in a series of films, shot over 2 years. In this first film, we see scenes of the construction, including the site huts.
