Bedford christmas walk (Sun. 15/12/13)

Posted on Updated on

Update : Now with guided tour of Bedford!

Bedford’s River Great Ouze offers a wealth of enjoyment from the showpiece of the town’s embankment to the peace of the English countryside to the East and the West.

See the rolling countryside, starting at the old Kempston mill, continuing to the immaculate embankment gardens and fine water meadowland, watching the rowing and water borne activities that have made the river an integral part of the life of North Bedfordshire.
