The local area guide to living in Stony-Stratford

Stony Stratford, otherwise referred to as Stony by local residents, is a small market town in Milton Keynes.

Stony' refers to stones on the bed of a ford, while 'Stratford', an Anglo Saxon word, means 'ford on a Roman road'. The Roman road in this case is Watling Street, which runs through the middle of Stony Stratford, while the ford is the crossing of the River Ouse.

Stony Stratford became part of Milton Keynes in the late 20th Century. In 1967, planning began for the new city of Milton Keynes – of which Stony Stratford, an already established town, was to be part of. While some of the other local towns and villages opted out, Stony Stratford opted in.

Since its integration into Milton Keynes, opportunities have blossomed for the town of Stony Stratford. More facilities are now available to residents, employment levels have improved, but the town still maintains and preserves its original character. In fact, there’s still a weekly market in Stony Stratford, just like there was back in 1194 – although back then it dealt with livestock and now it’s a regular farmers’ market.

Today’s residents of Stony Stratford can enjoy the many pubs, restaurants and shops it offers, as well as a number of local festivals – including Folk on the Green, a festival of folk music.
