To celebrate the 50th birthday of Milton Keynes becoming an official new town, we look at why it’s loved and remarked upon in equal measure.
Milton Keynes became a new town on 23 January 1967. In that time, the town has certainly evolved, and is now known more than just for its many roundabouts and the concrete cows. In fact, these 124 circular wonders have helped confirm the town has a success of urban planning and have attempted to drown the snide remarks that have often blighted MK from the media.
The concrete cows that were once symbolic of the new town are now comfortably housed in a museum; infrastructure and opportunities is what drives the town on towards its future.
Now an important transport hub – motorways and rail – link London and the Country ably. The sign of hope, ambition and opportunity that envelops the town has also encouraged many businesses to open or relocate in the vicinity. With many large UK and international corporates based within its boundaries, the demand for new homes continues to grow to support the professionals seeking the next step on their own personal career ladder.
At Michael Anthony Estate Agents, we’d like to say a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Enjoy yourselves, we’re proud to support and serve you. The Guardian have published this list of the positives to MK, if you have 5 mins, do have a read:
