As Northstowe grows so will the boundaries of the district, enabling the histories of other local villages to be preserved as and when required. Northstowe, a massive new development not seen in the UK since the town of Milton Keynes was built, will have a profound impact on the rural communities that exist today. LDHS was established so that what went before will not be forgotten.
