MK Skate - a history of skateboarding in Milton Keynes is the culmination of a unique two-year heritage programme led by creatives and the community of local skateboarders. The book explores the seminal role Milton Keynes has played in the development of UK skateboarding culture. Since the late ‘80s and early ‘90s the town has been regarded by many as the skate capital of the UK. It is an important story which until now has remained unrecorded and largely unknown outside of the skate community.

The book pulls together spotlight features on key skate places; interviews with local skateboarders across three generations, from the punk pioneers of the ‘80s through to current local pro skaters; thought pieces from architects and designers including Iain Borden and Gustav Edén; pieces on or by leading skate figures with local significance such as Matt Pritchard and Phil Chapman; highlights the strong accompanying creative culture and the work of key photographers, such as Leo Sharp and Wig Worland whose images feature throughout the publication. It is designed by local skate Neil Bowen, of Zip Design.

It is authored and edited by the team behind Sidewalk Magazine: Ben Powell, Ryan Gray, Leo Sharp and Wig Worland.
