Come join us for a guided walk of Great Linford Manor Park

Theme: Lords of the Manor

Great Linford Manor Park is unique to Milton Keynes. The history of the park can be traced back to at least Saxon times and many of the parks features date from the 17th and 18th Century. However many visitors are either unaware of this rich history or do not discover these hidden gems. Come join us as we take you on an exploration of the park as you learn more about the Lords of the Manor, how they have shaped this wonderful park and what began the decline of the estate. 

Date: 24th February (Sunday)

Time: 11:30am - 1pm

Meet: Milton Keynes Arts Centre car park, Great Linford, MK14 5DZ  - or click this link

Please bring suitable footwear as the walk will be both path and grass and prepare for the weather. The event is being led in partnership by the Friends of Great Linford Manor Park and the Parks Trust. 

The Parks Trust has also recently been awarded £3.7 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to 'Reveal, Revive and Restore' this wonderful park. You can find more information on this by visiting our HLF project webpage. This event is free due to HLF funding as we try and get more people to discover this wonderful park.
