In 1838, North Bucks was very much and agricultural community, with a small market town at Newport Pagnell and a coaching town at Stony Stratford. Wolverton had only a few hundred inhabitants. The railways changed that. Within a few years a redbrick industrial town had sprung up and by the end of the century was one of the largest towns in Buckinghamshire. This book describes its architectural development.
