About Stony Stratford
In 1742, a great fire was started when a maid hid some sheets up a chimney in the Bull hotel. The resulting fire destroyed a large portion of the town, including most of Mary Magdalen Church, of which only the tower remains. Over 100 other buildings were also destroyed.
The river Ouse flows around the town and is crossed by a ford, indeed the very name itself 'Stony Stratford' is Anglo Saxon in origin and means 'ford on a Roman road'.

Random England fact:
There was a state of war between the Netherlands and the Isles of Scilly for 335 years which ended in 1986, probably the longest war in history. The war was probably also unique in that there was never a shot fired. It all began at the final stages of the English Civil War after the sinking of Dutch shipping.
