Join us for a walk from Cranfield University, via Cranfield village, to the Forest Centre  & Millennium Country Park. Here we will be able to see Stewartby Lake and a few of the old and now unused brick factories. Did you know that Stewartby Lake was constructed to fill in the space left by the removal of clay by all the surrounding factories.
