MK is a fantastic place and when people say ‘where do you live? They frown and say ‘you want to go there?’ I say ‘No, actually you don’t want to come here… let’s keep it a secret! It’s such a great place and we don’t want you people moving here…’
I cycle everywhere in Milton Keynes – why do you need to drive when we have all the amazing Redways
Phil in The Wolverton Works Reading Room
I’ve lived for 30 years in the area and I won’t be moving out. Wolverton was the first railway town in the world. When people tell you Swindon was before it, or Doncaster or Crewe, they’re wrong! In November 1997 I was the marketing manager for railtrack and was called in to either privatise the Royal Train by hiring it out to make money or lay it up.
“Wolverton was the first railway town in the world. When people tell you Swindon was before it, or Doncaster or Crewe, they’re wrong!”
I met the Royal Train foreman and we decided to fiddle the business case to save it!!
I had a tour of the Royal Train and… because you would wouldn’t you, I had a bounce on the Queen’s bed!!
