Saturday 14 July: Woburn Abbey deer park POSTPONED

Posted on Updated on

Update on Saturday morning 14 July:  MESSAGE FROM Diane, our walk leader: I walked the route Wednesday morning and it was flooded in places because of all the rain we are having. I had two other routes in mind where we  could have walked on  hard surfaces, but this morning I have been out in the car to have a look and the river is up so high and over the banks in places that no way could we get through. Verdict: WALK POSTPONED until another date TBC.

Repeat of one of our popular walks: join us on a short drive less than 10 miles from Cranfield University to the pretty Woburn – one of the most historical towns in Bedfordshire. The walk takes us on a public footpath through the beautiful grounds of Woburn Abbey  and the deer park.
