Exploring Cranfield – to the East (Sat. 11.09.14)

Posted on Updated on

Exploring Cranfield – part 1 is a walk from Cranfield down into Marston Vale to the East passing a site of special interest (SSSI) through the wood (lovely in the current time with varying colours!) and back along the ridge. Besides taking in some quite beautiful lovely country views along the way, we can as well get to know some local industrial, social and geological history from our walk leader Paul who is a local resident in Cranfield village. Let’s walk around Cranfield and get to know the place where we live!
