Our walk on Sunday afternoon aims to introduce new students to the joy of walking to Cranfield village using a public footpath. This route is about 2.5 km one way and is a perfect running route, provided it is not too windy as it is quite exposed. The footpath from Cranfield University to Cranfield village circumnavigates the airfield. It the village we will be stopping at the local Co-operative supermarket; having a peak at the Forest of Marston Vale; and walking a section of National Route 51 of the National Cycle Network. The aim is to be back at Cranfield University just on time for the start of a student tea party organised by the Community Development Office.

 If you are free on Wednesday evening, why not join us for a walk to Cranfield village, using the public footpath ? The footpath from Cranfield University to Cranfield village circumnavigates the airfield. We will be stopping at a local take away for some fish & chips and the local Co-operative store, before having a picnic in the fields.

The Walking Society “Cranfield University Walks“, as part of its aims, serves to raise awareness amongst Cranfield University students about  the existence of the footpath to Cranfield village – especially at the time when the latest CSA presidential candidate claims in the CSA Election Booklet (available for download from the university’s intranet main page) there is no footpath from Cranfield University to Cranfield village at all. Voting for new CSA President and International Students Officer will take place on Thursday 3rd May from 10am-5pm in the CSA Foyer, Cranfield campus.
