Further Information

Chilterns

The Chilterns lie only a few miles to the north west of London and yet they are a beautiful, unspoilt corner of England. The gently rolling hills are swathed in woodland and chalk downland and in quiet valleys attractive villages with their traditional brick and flint cottages nestle around medieval churches. The most dramatic feature of the area is the chalk escarpment, a ridge running south west to north east, which rises up steeply from the Vale of Aylesbury and slopes gently south east towards London. This underlying chalk geology gives rise to clear chalk streams which are home to valuable wildlife. Chilterns Walking Guide

Bedfordshire

The southern end of Bedfordshire includes he Chiltern Hills, which form the highest land in the county. Away from the hills the county is dominated by the wide drainage basin of the River Great Ouse and its tributaries. Most of Bedfordshire's rocks are clays and sandstones with some limestone. Brick making has been an important industry using local clay especially the Marston Vale. The production of sand and gravel has also been important and some of the old workings are now lakes including those at Priory Country Park, Wyboston and Felmersham. Another important feature is the Greensand Ridge, an escarpment across the county from near Leighton Buzzard into neighbouring Cambridgeshire. The key towns are Bedford and Luton.
