Fenny Stratford like its north MK counterpart, Stony, grew up as a coaching town along the busy route between London and the towns and cities of the north and midlands. Its history can still be seen today in the pubs there were coaching inns along Watling Street. At the coming of the railway, the commercial centre was moved to the rapidly expanding village of Bletchley and the two towns became more or less amalgamated into one, although Fenny still retains an identity unique from Bletchley and indeed has its own station on the Bletchley to Bedford line. The local church is St. Martin's and Manor Fields sports ground is to be found at Fenny Stratford. Just outside the city boundary is the site of the old roman town of Magniovinium. The city of Milton Keynes now provides for most people's needs including a very good communication system of roads and rail. The mainline railway station provides fast, direct InterCity services to commute to London Euston and the North. Easy access to the main A5 road and M1 Motorway for Junctions 13 and 14, making both the M25 and M6 motorways respectively very accessible. Luton International Airport is approximately 25 miles away. The Central Milton Keynes shopping centre features one of the largest undercover shopping centres in the UK with extensive entertainment facilities including nightclubs, bars, restaurants and a new Theatre district. In the surrounding areas can be found a comprehensive range of fitness/health clubs, indoor and outdoor sports centres and quality golf courses plus the internationally renowned Stables venue at Wavendon. Further leisure facilities include the National Hockey Stadium, bowling alleys, an ice rink and several large multiplex cinemas, the largest indoor ski slope in the UK plus dedicated water sports and equestrian facilities, all within easy access.
