The St Modwen Planning Application to demolish Wolverton Works was approved by Milton Keynes Council on 17 November 2016 - or was it? It lies within a Conservation Area, with affordable housing set at only 10% instead of the mandated 30%. Historic England Objected and a 2nd Hearing on 3 August 2017 was nullified due to 'procedural errors'. Another hearing was held on 25 September and Councillors voted narrowly in favour of demolition. Historic England has asked the Government to 'Call In' the decision and hold a public inquiry under the Judicial Review process.

The Wolverton175 website was dedicated to the 175th anniversary in September 2013 and subsequent events at The Works deserve an independent digital outlet.  


Given the 150 years of Royal Trains at Wolverton, it seemed approriate to use


The images here depict the official book, an illustration of a 'Bloomer' being erected in 1860 and the official Wolverton 175 logo.
