Woburn Sands is a small town and civil parish in the Borough of Milton Keynes. The earliest evidence of settlement is an Iron Age hill fort dating from around 500 BC, called Danesborough Camp which is located to the southwest of the present town. The village name was originally Hogsty End, one of Wavendon's four 'ends' (along with Church End, Cross End and Lower End) but by Victorian times, this un-picturesque name had fallen out of favour, and Woburn Sands had taken over as the accepted name.The town had a reputation as a health spa because of the micro-climate, and people would come from far and wide to "take the airs".
