Country Walk around Emmaus Village Carlton (Sat. 28/06/14)

Posted on Updated on

Join us for a country walk around Emmaus Village Carlton.
Emmaus Village Carlton is a local charity that not only offers homeless people the opportunity to help themselves, but to help others. Its idea originates from the birth of the Emmaus Movement in post-war France, advocated by Abbe Pierre.

Walk & Shop: The Emmaus Village Carlton Shops and Bistro are Open
10:00 – 4:30 Tue – Sat. Perfect for low cost second-hand shopping if you need kitchen items (glasses, cutlery, plates, bowls, cute china cups) , books, lamps, picture frames, flower pots and furniture! Also drop off point available – if you are moving out soon from your student accommodation, drop off any unwanted items and prevent them going into landfill.

Harrold-Odell Country Park (Sat. 22/03/14)

Posted on Updated on

This walk is a 5.5 miles circular route: from the Old Watermill at Odell,  a gentle walk to the high ground in the bends of the River Great Ouse (with great views when walking the ridge, it’s said you can see five church spires).

then along by a sunken road to Freer’s Wood and a historic paddock, back down to the river along the causeway to an ancient bridge over the River Great Ouse and on to the Country Park (where you will find many wood carvings), through a meadow along the river and back to Odell.
