284820_262213713789548_2227830_nFrom Odell, Mill Lane/Horsefair Lane. This is a 5 1/2 miles circular route, gently ascending to the high ground in the bends of the River Great Ouse with great views when walking the ridge and on the way down (they say you can see five churches). Stop at Harrold visitor centre where tea and cake is available (optional). After this we will continue on to see the woodcarvings, finishing with a walk by the river. Bring a drink and snack for the break half way round; there are the usual styles and steps, wear appropriate footwear and clothing for a walk in the country.

Meet by the Natwest bank @ 1:30 p.m.

The walk will cost £5 for members, £7 for non-members as there is transport involved, depending on numbers if there is money left over we will add it to the cake fund 🙂

Sign up sheet will be in the CSA from Tuesday 7th May, deadline for signing up is Friday 10th May at 2:00pm

Repeat of one of our popular events  from last year: join us on a circular walk that starts in the beautiful Harrold- Odell Country Park in North Bedfordshire. Walk continues through the charming village of Odell; continuing through the woods and pass the Poddington Airfield that hosted US army during the World War II and a Polish camp until 1956-7. Next entering the enchanting Forty Foot (Acre) Woods with its spectacular hide and then soon onto the fields surrounding the village of Bozeat. There we are invited into the garden of Glenda and Robert for a light lunch and some traditional English cream teas. Followed by another hour’s walk back to the village of Harrold and to the lake of Harrold-Odell Country park. Last stop – The Bell pub in Odell.

Cream teas @ Bozeat: Glenda’s husband served a long time in Royal Navy and so she is an avid supporter of The Royal British Legion and Help the Heroes charities. Therefore instead of being charged for our amazing cream teas this Saturday, Glenda asks us to make a donation on the day that will go towards the charities that she supports. Transport is paid for by the walking society ‘Cranfield University Walks‘.
