    Black Horse Wood.jpg

    Blackhorse Wood is located off Wolverton Road, close to Stonepit Field and Great Linford Manor Park. The woodland has developed over the past forty years or so on former paddocks that straddled the embankment of the old Wolverton to Newport Pagnell railway line, which ceased being used in the 1960s and now forms the Milton Keynes Railway Walk (adopted foot/horse/cycle path).

    Brooklands Meadow - park.jpg

    While The Parks Trust maintains Brooklands Meadow Park it is not yet officially our land and is currently owned by Places for People. A modern, well thought out flood retention site with a dam structure, it ensures the surrounding houses don’t flood in times of heavy rain. As the area develops, there are plans for this park to link up with the other linear parks nearby.

    Refreshments
    There are no facilities available on site but a pub can be found nearby in Broughton.
