Being in the geographical heart of the country has meant that the East Midlands town of Northampton has always had historical relevance. Its strategic importance may have wavered but due to its location between Birmingham and London it still proves an attractive location as a commuter town for the capital. Since being designated a new town Northampton has grown massively.
Due south from Northampton into the county of Buckinghamshire are the towns of Bletchley and Wolverton. In 1967 these towns and many smaller villages and surrounding farmland were incorporated into an all-new conurbation. It took its name from the existing village of Milton Keynes, located a few miles to the east of the planned centre.
Milton Keynes modernist look is not popular with many as, much like its road system, it was designed to be purely functional. Originally there were height restrictions on all property built in the town, it was decided that ‘no building should ever be taller than the tallest tree’. This decree has since been rescinded.
The river Nene, which flows through Northamptonshire, has been known to become swollen at times of excessive rainfall and cause flooding in areas. Milton Keynes has also suffered with flash flooding in the past, causing havoc for both motorists and property owners. Flooding such as this can lead to long-term problems that may not become evident until long after the waters have subsided.
