On the Wolverton to Newport Pagnell Road, New Bradwell developed in the mid-19th Century as a residential area for workers from the Wolverton railway works and much of the village remains unchanged. Bradwell Windmill, situated on the southern bank of the Grand Union Canal, was built in 1817 and continued as a working mill until about 18781. Built of locally quarried limestone, the mill has been restored, although the sails are now operated by an electric motor. 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.
