Come along to this winter walk in Bedford!

The_River_Great_Ouse_At_BedfordWe will go by bus, car (drivers needed) or taxi to the Old Kempston Mill where we will set off for a walk along the riverbank towards Bedford. There we will enjoy some nice views and will be able to feed the ducks and swans, as well as watch the rowers of Bedfordshire.

Once in town we will meet our guide, who will take us around the city, and will talk to us about the importance of Bedford in English History, and its role in the World War II. We will learn about the intrigues which led to the demolition of the Castle of Bedford, quirky societies such as The Panacea and so many other interesting stories and monuments which will give us a whole new point of view about Bedford.
