H6 Childs Way

Coordinates: 52°00′15″N 0°48′17″W / 52.0043°N 0.8048°W / 52.0043; -0.8048

The H6 Childs Way is a major local road in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, England. It runs for 6 miles (10 kilometres) from the western boundary of Milton Keynes at Kingsmead to a point near its eastern edge, just short of Junction 14 of the M1 Motorway. The formal name of the road is simply Childs Way; the H6 is a number that signifies that the road is the sixth east-west road in the Milton Keynes grid system.


The H6 starts as a 30 mph (48 km/h) local distributor road between the districts of Kingsmead and Whitney. After crossing Whitney Roundabout the road becomes 60 mph (97 km/h) but remains as a single carriageway. After bridging Powis Lane in between Westcroft and Oxley Park the road becomes a dual carriageway at Shenley Roundabout. It then passes very close to the Grove Independent School and subsequently bridges both the A5 and the West Coast Main Line. The road then crosses the V6 Grafton Street and runs along the southern edge of Central Milton Keynes and Campbell Park before passing Willen Lake. After this it passes the original Milton Keynes village and then curves up to meet the A509, briefly becoming the A4146.[1]


Due to its nature as a Milton Keynes grid road, Childs Way has an unusual number of roundabouts (by the standards of other towns) along its short route. For clarity their names and the roads they cross are listed below from west to east:
