Oxley Park is part of MK Pilgrims Trail, which winds its way through Milton Keynes, starting at Bradwell Abbey and ending at Tattenhoe. We pick up the trail in Oxley Park, the home of Future Fossil, which will in future become a new landmark for residents and visitors to the area. Nicky Kenny, leads the way telling tales inspired by the natural history of the landscape, old and the new folklore of the city. 

Nicky Kenny is a freelance creative and community engagement practitioner with years of experience organising and promoting events, working in schools and delivering community projects. She has a passion for walking and cycling and for being outdoors and a huge love of photography, cooking and gardening. An energetic and enthusiastic person, Nicky loves to bring people together in creative and engaging ways to explore the world around us.

The main part of the route is gentle, follows redways and pathways and there will be frequent stops along the way. However, The Swans Way is not wheelchair accessible, so the route will divide and meet closer to Oxley Mead, leaving a shorter distance over grass to the final destination.
