Great Linford Manor Park
Great Linford Manor Park is a unique site in Milton Keynes with a history stretching back to at least the Saxon times. Many features of the park, for example the Water Gardens and nearby Wilderness Garden date from the 17th and 18th centuries when the park was laid out to provide the setting to the impressive Manor House, which is now privately owned (please respect the resident's privacy).
However, many of the park's special historic features are now showing signs of age and awareness of the historic design is much decreased. We want to conserve and restore Great Linford Manor Park to make it an even more attractive and interesting place to visit. Thanks to National Lottery Players, we have been awarded £3.1m in funding by the National Lottery Heritage Fund to 'Reveal, Revive & Restore' the important heritage at the park. Find out more about the project here. Whilst the project is happening, the park will remain open and events will be happening throughout the year.

A network of surfaced paths give access to most of the park's main features and up to the canal, though some paths are quite steep. A set of deep steps leads down to the Cascade Pond, but alternative routes to this area are provided via Campion (click here for a What3Words location) and from the canal towpath (click here for a What3Words location).
