Happy Birthday, Milton Keynes!

To the ancient woodland, for a birthday walk.

 Spot the art project.

Along the roadway by the wood bank, marking the Anglo Saxon woodland boundary.

The walk leader tells us that a few swine have rights of pannage here, thanks to the Ultimate Norman Surveillance Document, aka Domesday Book.

Guardian of the Woods, Old Oak. Positioned at the junction of the path and the wood bank, serving as the eighteenth century noticeboard of ownership and access rights.

A baby elm! Part of the elm project.

Past the priory, dismantled, literally, in the Reformation. Earth work plan available.

But no-one lives in and around the fields and woods of MK without accepting development. But what  format should it take?
