Arriving in Milton Keynes in 1968 from Wembley, North London, Paul shares his memories of relocating to Milton Keynes and the differences between London and the emerging New Town. He recalls his part in building the New Town, recalling memories of the beginnings of road building and working long hours. He tells the story of delivering concrete to Stacey Hill Farm which was used by the artist Liz Leyh to create the infamous concrete cows.
This HLF-funded project celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of Milton Keynes. We interviewed more than 50 people who have made the town their home, who shared their memories, experiences, and hopes for the future. For more information about the project, visit mkpeoplesstories.co.uk
