Come and join us for a leisurely walk round the Bedfordshire countryside in the early part of summer. Our walk will take us through some stunning countryside, alongside the river Great Ouse and beautiful picture worthy villages.

Our walk will start in Bedford town centre (option for a nice hearty breakfast at the start) where we will follow the river west towards the outskirts of the town. We will be following the John Bunyan trail for most of the day. This walk will take approximately 5-6 hours with adequate refreshment breaks with a pace to suit all.

Once the walk is complete there are plenty of decent real ale pubs in town where we can have a quiet pint of something refreshing!

For our four legged friends this route is definitely dog friendly although usual Countryside Code rules will apply and I ask that you please respect that not everyone is a dog lover.  Please note there will be stiles so you may have to lift your dog over them in places.  

Can you offer a lift?  The nearest train station is Bedford which is a 10 minute walk away from our start looking at train times the last train from London leave at 9:05 from st pancras and gets into Bedfordat 9:40.  Looking after our environment is important to OutdoorLads - if you are coming by car and can offer a lift, please use the comments boxes on this event page to arrange with other members. There are car parks nearby but they are not free on a Saturday. The cheapest and nearest car park is Melbourne street MK42 9AN £4 for the whole day.
