Concrete Cows

Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes' most famous inhabitants, constructed in 1978 by community artist Liz Leyh with the help of local school children using scrap materials.

The cows have an interesting history. In 1979 one of the calves was kidnapped by students and a ransom demanded. No one knows if it was paid or not but the calf was never seen again.

In 1986 the cows were all repainted as zebras and in 1988 'Millie Moo' was stolen. This time she was recovered.

Visitors are advised to park in City Discovery Centre or Bancroft Roman Villa car park and walk to the site.
