Central Milton Keynes

Central Milton Keynes is the central business district of Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, England and a civil parish in its own right.

The district is approximately 2.5 km long by 1 km wide and occupies some of the highest land in Milton Keynes. It contains (behind the Central Library) the site of Secklow Hundred moot hill, the meeting site of the Anglo-Saxon settlers in the area. It contains the central retail, business, law enforcement and governmental districts, Milton Keynes Central railway station and around 2000 residential dwellings.

(Campbell Park, stretching from Marlborough Street down to the Grand Union Canal, is sometimes included in mental maps of the centre, though in fact it is part of a separate civil parish). It is included in the area known as Central Milton Keynes for the purposes of planning and development.

Famous quotes containing the words central and/or milton:

    There has never been in history another such culture as the Western civilization M a culture which has practiced the belief that the physical and social environment of man is subject to rational manipulation and that history is subject to the will and action of man; whereas central to the traditional cultures of the rivals of Western civilization, those of Africa and Asia, is a belief that it is environment that dominates man.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)

    Who first seduc’d them to that fowl revolt?
    Th’ infernal Serpent; he it was, whose guile
    Stird up with Envy and Revenge, deceiv’d
    The Mother of Mankinde, what time his Pride
    Had cast him out from Heav’n, with all his Host
    Of Rebel Angels,
    —John Milton (1608–1674)
