Monkston and Monkston Park
This is primarily a residential district based around a large circular recreational area and a combined school.
The area that was to become Milton Keynes was relatively rich: possibly the largest (by weight) hoard of Bronze Age jewellery ever found in Britain ("the Milton Keynes Hoard") was discovered in Monkston and consists of two late Bronze Age gold torcs and three gold bracelets.
The Kingston district is primarily a manufacturing and distribution industries one [due to its proximity to Junctions 13 and 14 of the M1]. At its centre is a large retail complex, dominated by a Tesco hypermarket: this complex serves the eastern and south-eastern suburbs of Milton Keynes.
This is a relatively small warehousing and industrial district. It is dominated by the large Waitrose distribution centre.
