We have recently sold properties in Stony Stratford and sold prices have increased recently. Stony Stratford is one of the oldest districts of Milton Keynes, dating from well before the years of the industrial revolution which resulted in Bletchley and Wolverton becoming the major towns in our area. There are plentiful shopping facilities along the High Street as well as a sports ground, library, two schools and a number of churches including the church of St. Mary and St. Giles. Much of Stony's history comes from the coaching trade. At the time, this was a very prosperous stopping point for coaches between London and the North and Midlands. The town's two biggest coaching inns, the Cock and the Bull became infamous. Travellers in these two inns would frequently compete as to who could tell the most outrageous tales, hence the meaning of the age old saying 'Cock and Bull Story'. Stony is one of the city's favourite destinations for a night out, having excellent choice of pubs and restaurants as well as just being a very pleasing place to walk around at night. For daytime peace and relaxation, Stony is just a 'stones throw' from the Ouse Valley Park, which includes a wildlife conservation area. 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. Access to the main A5 road is 2 miles away and M1 Motorway access is approximately 6 miles away at Junctions 13 and 14, making both the M25 and M6 motorways respectively very accessible.
