Woughton - Netherfield


Netherfield is a housing estate located opposite Milton Keynes General Hospital, it also has a large shopping district featuring a co-op, public house, African food specialists, kebab house, Chinese takeaway, fish & chip shop and a doctors surgery (The Grove). The Parish Council offices are in Farthing Grove, Netherfield.

The estate was largely designed by Dixon, Jones, Gold and Cross around 1971, and is essentially modernist; it comprises several long parallel terraces, designed around the landform so that the roofline remains level: homes towards the top of the slopes are single storey; those at the bottom are three storey. The choice of prefabricated construction materials was partly a consequence of a shortage of bricks in the UK at the time. Milton Keynes Council has gradually been renovating the estate, adding a pitched roof when funds permit.
