Oral history audio recordings of original residents who moved in the 1950s into existing towns and villages that were later designated as Milton Keynes.
The ‘Peoples History of Milton Keynes’ project includes approximately 324 oral history interviews recorded by and on behalf of the Living Archive. This selection of 11 interviews were recorded between August 2000 and March 2001, with original residents who moved during the 1950s into the area that would subsequently become known as Milton Keynes. The interviews in most part cover the interviewee’s reminiscences prior to the urbanisation and their thoughts on the subsequent changes.
Some interviewees have requested that the transcript should only be accessed for educational purposes.
