This website began as a small blog, diarising the experiences of one family of residents in Oxley Woods. Now the site is home to an active forum for residents to share their views, news, experiences, advice and simply socialise online. We also aim to serve as a community hub for sharing information regarding the past, present and future of the multi-award winning Oxley Woods housing development in Milton Keynes.
Oxley Woods is a multi-award winning housing development, the jewel in the crown being the 2008 RIBA Manser Medal, an award more typically presented to one-off, high-end architect designed properties.
Awards and accolades include…
Oxley Woods is located to the south-western edge of the “New City” of Milton Keynes, as part of the Oxley Park estate, situated within the parish of Shenley Church End.
This unique position places residents within walking distance of several established woods, open countryside and traditional villages, yet only a few minutes from Central Milton Keynes.
We are served by the No.8 bus service which connects Westcroft in the south-western corner of Milton Keynes to Wavendon Gate in the north-west, via central Milton Keynes.
Oxley Woods, perhaps by its very nature, has rapidly developed an active community spirit and is a genuinely friendly neighbourhood. Residents come from all walks of life, and around the World, our unique properties create a common link between us all.
If you'd like to see what we are up to, please feel free to browse, register and join in at the Oxley Woods forum here at Oxley Woods living. We also occasionally have get-togethers such as the Big Lunch event, again this is usually posted on the Oxley Woods forum and in the occasional Oxley Woods Newsletter (generally available in the private residents forum in PDF format).
There is also an Oxley Woods Wiki (external link), which would welcome contributions!
