Introduction to Walk 2810

Photo from the walk - Haynes Circular

County/Area - Bedfordshire

Author - Donald Morton

Length - 7.0 miles / 11.4 km

Ascent - 200 feet / 61 metres

Time - 3 hours 40 minutes

Grade - easy/mod

Only a short distance from Bedford, this is really a delightful rural ramble in the home country of John Bunyan, starting on open uplands, descending to the plain surrounding Bedford and finishing through a stretch of woodland reserve. (The latter only in spring through autumn; in winter a longer alternative must be taken.) There is opportunity for refreshment near the end of the walk. It could be combined with walk 1130. A GPS File is available for download (see walk description).

Please maintain social distancing - keep at least 2 metres away from other walkers
