Gamlingay, Tetworth & Everton from Potton
Introduction to Walk 2305

Photo from the walk - Gamlingay, Tetworth & Everton from Potton

County/Area - Bedfordshire & Cambridgeshire

Author - Donald Morton

Length - 9.5 miles / 15.4 km

Ascent - 200 feet / 61 metres

Grade - easy/mod

Potton, some 3 miles NNE of Biggleswade, is itself an interesting historic market town which is partly explored. Otherwise the walk uses two long distance trails, to pass through a variety of landscapes: arable farms typical of the region, SSSI woodland, parkland along the Greensand Ridge with views over Central Bedfordshire and visiting two ancient churches en route. There are lots of places for refreshment in Potton (and a good butchers and bakers still holding out against Tesco) and a pub at Everton. (And there is lots of information about the footpaths round Gamlingay and Everton on www.bernardoconnors.org.uk - follow the footpath link)
