Three high-powered EV chargers have been installed at the Blacksmith Arms in Milton Keynes, supporting local residents, businesses and visitors in their sustainable journeys.

The 60kW rapid charge points are compatible with every EV on the market today and can typically add 100 miles of range in just 35 minutes, depending on the model of the vehicle and its battery.

The chargers are easy to use and designed with simple payment for drivers and are Zap-Pay compatible, enabling users to start their charge at the tap of a button. The charge points also accept contactless bank cards, Apple/Google Pay, the Osprey App and RFID card payments.

This installation is expected to encourage EV uptake in the area, bolstering the UK’s national charging infrastructure as well as improving local air quality, reducing noise pollution and supporting local decarbonisation efforts.

“The electric transition is well underway and we’re here to provide a reliable and rapid public charging service for drivers, from Cornwall to the Scottish Highlands,” said Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging,

“Osprey now has over 1,000 charge points installed across the UK, each carefully designed to maximise space, accessibility and availability and made to the latest and highest standards.” 

“The charging site at the Blacksmith Arms will form a vital part of the re-charging network that will enable the decarbonisation of transport in the UK.”

Osprey has funded this installation, operation and oversees maintenance of the chargers which are all supplied with renewable energy.


Wells & Co, the landlord for the Blacksmith Arms site, benefits from a future-proofed car park and being able to attract more EV drivers as customers.

Osprey and Zapmap share a live data partnership, which means that users of the Zapmap app and web map are able to view the live status and availability of all Osprey charge points at any time, making planning for charging stops even easier.
