Join us for this special Halloween walk in the dark on Thursday evening. After a short journey to Cranfield village where the walk will start, we will continue on the National Route 51 of the National Cycle Network towards the Forest of Marston Vale; through the wooded Marston Trift to the neighbouring village of Marston Moretaine; ending there by the 15th century church of St Mary. This is a beautiful ancient church with an unusual detached tower that perhaps served once as a watchtower, or a place of refuge. A very special event not to be missed! And of course, afterwards we are going for a pint in the Bell Pub in Marston Moretaine.
Did you know? Halloween is on October 31st, the last day of the Celtic calendar. It was originally a pagan holiday, honoring the dead. Halloween was referred to as All Hallows Eve and dates back to over 2000 years ago. For more information click here.
