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 habitat for birds, frogs, newts and dragonflies by storing rain water 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.
There is a public car park on the northern side of Stonepit Field, off Wolverton Road.
There are no public toilets at Stonepit Field.
There are no hard footpaths, just grass paths which may be difficult in bad weather.
