Halloween Night Walk – Marston Moretaine (Thursday 30/10/14)

Posted on Updated on

1Join 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.
