The 17 things you don’t see in Milton Keynes anymore that you could a decade ago
Milton Keynes has seen huge change over the last 10 years.
Milton Keynes is something of a pioneer for the UK in terms of innovations and new business. From driverless cars to takeaways delivered by drone and groceries by robot MK is always one step ahead. But we have also lost some much-loved familiar haunts over the last decade as our gallery showcases.
5. National Hockey Stadium
MK's National Hockey Stadium, which was once home to MK Dons, is no more. It is now the Network Rail headquarters.
The Sanctuary Music Arena was in Denbigh North, MK, was famous on the rave scene. The venue became pivotal in the development of numerous underground electronic dance music genres, sub-genres and styles and played host to the UK's biggest dance music promoters including the likes of Dreamscape, Helter Skelter, Cream, Sidewinder and Godskitchen. It was closed in 2004 and made way for IKEA.
Rollers was an iconic venue not just for MK skaters but for young people across the south east. People would come from far and wide for its events and will bring a nostalgic tear to the eye of any kids of the 80s and 90s.
Anyone fancy a bit of bowling and some Quasar Laser? That was the shout back in the day wasn't it. Kids loved a bit of Quasar fun, a simpler time. Another truly nostalgic MK venue for which people would travel from miles around.
