Walton, Milton Keynes

Walton, Milton Keynes

Walton (historically) was a hamlet that is now a district and civil parish in Milton Keynes, ceremonial Buckinghamshire, England

The historic hamlet is located about four miles south of Central Milton Keynes and just east of Simpson, mostly along Walton Road in the modern Walnut Tree district. The modern H9 Groveway grid road severs a few of its houses into Walton Hall and the V10 Brickhill Street separates the Manor Farm into Walton grid square, where it is now a research centre for Hoechst.

The village name is a common one in England, and is an Old English language word, meaning either 'village of the Britons' ("wale" being a word meaning Briton) or 'walled village'. In the Domesday Book of 1086 the village was recorded as "Waletone".

The manor house of the village, (Walton Hall) and its chapel of ease, now , are in the grounds of The Open University, in the Walton Hall district.

Modern Walton

The modern Walton district is a light-industrial and residential district on the banks of the River Ouzel, a tributary of the Great Ouse and on the other side of Brickhill Street from the hamlet that gives it its name. It is largely the grounds of Walton Manor Farm. The other village farm, Walnut Tree Farm, still exists and the Walnut Tree district is on its lands.

Civil Parish

The civil parish of Walton includes the districts of Browns Wood, Caldecotte, Old Farm Park, Tilbrook, Tower Gate, Walton, Walton Hall, Walton Park, Walnut Tree and Wavendon Gate. Caldecotte Lake is one of the more significant geographic features, extending from Caldecotte and Walton Park.
