 We are going to start the walk in the village of Great Barford, famous for its medieval bridge. Break at Danish Camp  – described as Bedfordshire’s best kept secret (we might spot a European eagle owl there), followed by a stop to admire the magnificent historical Dovecote and stables managed by National Trust. The walk will finish at Go Outdoors store at Goldington Road, Bedford, for some afternoon  shopping. Perfect if you like to try on new walking boots or get a new base layer!

Big thank you goes to Deborah who came up with the idea for this lovely walk.
