About Stonepit Field

Stonepit Field gets its name from the nearby small limestone quarry, long disused, from which some of the oldest buildings in Great Linford were sourced. In 2008, The Parks Trust undertook an extensive drainage and landscape remodelling project in partnership with Persimmon Homes. Two ponds were created to help control flood water and create new wetland habitats for birds, frogs, newts and dragonflies by storing rainwater from the new development at Stantonbury Park Farm.

The ponds have improved and increased the wildlife diversity of the area and provide valuable, new wetland areas for aquatic and semi-aquatic species. The new planting has also provided food and shelter for an increased number of bird species. Stonepit Field's wildflower meadow is home to a colony of small blue butterflies and is the only park in Milton Keynes where you will be able to see them. You can easily make a day out of it by continuing on your journey into Great Linford Manor Park which is just a few minutes’ walk away.
