As Bendixson and Platt write: "They divided the Ouzel Valley into 'strings, beads and settings'. As a key element of the planners' vision, Milton Keynes has a purpose built centre, with a very large "covered high street" shopping centre, [53] a theatre[54] [55] municipal art gallerya multiplex cinema[56] hotels, [57] central business districtan ecumenical church[58] Borough Council offices [59] and central railway station. The coach trade on the turnpike through Stony Stratford collapsed, taking many businesses with it. Unfortunately, the heavy clay soils, poor drainage and many streams made these routes frequently impassable in winter. Ditches and pits, for example, hold a greater amount of moisture than the surrounding natural soil, and are thus less resistant, whereas solid features like walls are more resistant. Large settlements have been excavated at Pennyland and near Milton Keynes Village.

Pottery from the Midlands begins to appear in excavations of dwellings from that period. It expanded to absorb the villages of Water Eaton and Fenny Stratford. Bletchley, originally a small village in the parish of Fenny Stratford, grew to reach and absorb its parent.

The most notable archaeological artefact was the Milton Keynes Hoardwhich the British Museum described as 'one of the biggest concentrations of Bronze Age gold known from Britain and seems to flaunt wealth. Traffic movements are fast, with relatively little congestion since there are alternative routes to any particular destination other than during peak periods. Most important of these is Watling Street from London to Chester. The largest and almost the last of the British New Towns, Milton Keynes has 'stood the test of time far better than most, and has proved flexible and adaptable'. Organises walks, talks, displays and sometimes archaeological digs.
