The Peterborough Express editorial on this day addressed toe question of Greater Peterborough, claiming that: 'It almost seems as if another movement to expand the Borough is impending. This time it is not a question of uniting brickopolis to Peterborough but one of absorbing the opposite rapidly growing extremity.' What was being discussed at this time was the framing of uniform by-laws - particularly those relating to house sizes and the widths of the new streets needed. Walton was the immediate consideration, as it hadn't yet committed to a new drainage scheme and other works that would inevitably follow. (Peterborough Local History Society Magazine)
