The Home

What was it like as a child growing up in Old Bradwell, Wolverton during WWII (now known as Bradwell, Milton Keynes )?

We have spoken to many people who were born in the village, grew up in the village and still live in the village.

How did their childhood during the years 1939 - 1945 compare with children living in the village in the year 2000?

As you look at houses in the village today, many of them look almost the same on the outside as they did during WWII. However, inside they are very different. On this page we hope to show you how the lives of children in the village have changed.
