Cosgrove – MKDONS training ground

Today (27th Jan 2017) has seen a press announcement that MK Council Cabinet will discuss MK Dons’ training ground ambitions to build a training complex adjacent to the A509 between Newport Pagnell and Sherington, with the recommendation to approve the sale of land to the club.

The BCS trustees make the following statement regarding the land at Cosgrove:

The Buckingham Canal Society continues to work towards the society’s charitable aims to restore the canal arm from Cosgrove to Buckingham.

As a part of that aim, we work with multiple landowners and are grateful to Pete Winkelman for his vision to include the canal in his previous plans for the site.

We anticipate that the fundamental support for a restored canal will continue regardless of the detail plans that may eventually come about for the land at Cosgrove and look forward to exploring options with Pete Winkelman at this location.
