Woburn Deer Park and Abbey Gardens (Sunday 26/10/2014)

Posted on

Woburn Deer Park was set up by the Dukes of Bedford a few hundred years ago as a private ground to keep deer for hunting. The whole landscape gives scenic vistas with small hills, valleys, individual trees and wooded areas. The walk will mainly be in the woods and country paths.
