From Railway Line
to Railway Walk
The line from Wolverton to Newport Pagnell came into operation in 1866 running a goods train. Passenger travel commenced a year later in 1867 for the workers to commute to Wolverton where they worked either in the railway works or McCorquedales. Shoppers travelled to Newport for the nearest Woolworths!
The line sadly closed down in 1964.
With the closing of the line it became an ideal opportunity when the tracks were removed to tarmac a walkway from New Bradwell to Wolverton as part of the redway cycle system. Railway Walk came into being and is a pleasant walk on a Sunday afternoon.
It is also well used by cyclists.
