Looking back at Milton Keynes

£11.50

This fascinating journey through time looks into the history of the region before and up to the development of the new city, from prehistoric settlers, conquest by Romans, Saxons and Normans, to pioneers of stagecoach, canal and railway.

This fascinating journey through time looks into the history of the region before and up to the development of the new city, from prehistoric settlers, conquest by Romans, Saxons and Normans, to pioneers of stagecoach, canal and railway.

Primeval sea creatures, Bronze Age treasure, medieval wall paintings, long-lost castles, a Victorian new town and a church without a congregation are all part of this amazing story.

We also find out how the modern road network was crucial in preserving the past, why Shenley and Bradwell were once at war with each other, why landlocked Milton Keynes has more shoreline than Jersey, how Bletchley changed the course of WW2 and why a modern city was named after a Doomsday Book village.
