Verney Family Sells 700 Acres at Site of ‘Calvert New Town’

A little bird has told me that the Claydon Estate (the Verney Family) has just sold 700 acres around where the Calvert New Town – which we have often promoted on this site – would be.  Also rumors rife that an HS2 station at Calvert will be announced.

One final piece in the jigsaw.  Make sure the infrastructure north of Calvert – especially the Brackley viaduct – is wide enough to include a future restoration of the Great Central Line =- as HS2 would run over thwe former GCR permanent way for a few KM north of Calvert, easily done but essential as the viaduct is at tender stage.

  1. They bide their time, these aristocratic owners. I remember that a member of that family was a member of the Board of Milton Keynes DC in its early years. And when I was working on the master plan for Peterborough we had to avoid the estate of Lord ¿Fitzwilliam.
