As you go round the top of Milton Keynes you are passing through all of the old villages that were there before Milton Keynes was built-up as it is now. Near to Giffard Park and Great Linford was the start of the short lived canal to Newport Pagnell. All that can be seen now is the old entrance and the plaque.

The alms-houses in Linford Park
We went for a walk around Linford Park. Behind these alms-houses is the Milton Keynes arts centre and this is all next to the church. I must say this for Milton Keynes - it has a lot of open park space.
