About Campbell Wharf
Just minutes from bustling Central Milton Keynes and next to the tranquil surrounds of Campbell Park, Campbell Wharf is an exciting new development which will sit alongside the Grand Union Canal.
Location and surrounding villages
Campbell Wharf is a one of a kind location, in touching distance from the city centre but against a backdrop of Campbell Park, The Grand Union Canal, Willen Lake and surrounding Parklands, bringing about a scenic and peaceful landscape to be enjoyed.
History and Heritage
During the archaeological investigation, the team uncovered ancient artefacts and remains that suggest the land was historically used for farming and livestock as far back as the Iron Age and early Roman era. In more recent history, neighbouring villages and pubs have a great deal to be discovered by residents and visitors at Campbell Wharf.
Canal, marina and waterway
The Grand Union Canal provides a unique setting for Campbell Wharf, it is the longest canal in the UK and brings with it opportunities for leisure and recreation, to explore nature, and important ventures such as the new Bedford and Milton Keynes Waterway Park.
Brickworks and Brickmaking
Milton Keynes lies in the Oxford Clay belt and the local area has a rich history of brickmaking. The once thriving industry was greatly dependent on the Grand Union Canal for transporting the bricks produced in the area. Many signs of the brick making era remain to this day, and stories from local brick makers to be uncovered.
