Stevington Country Walk
This route uses sections of the John Bunyan Trail and the Ouse Valley Way to create a circular walk around the Bedfordshire village of Stevington.
On the way you'll visit the Stevington Windmill, Pavenham and Oakley. There's fine views of the River Great Ouse and the surrounding countryside to enjoy as you make your way through the area. The historic village itself is also interesting with a medieval church and several listed buildings to see.
The walk starts in the village and follows the waymarked footpath north towards Pavenham with a riverside section along the way. The route then heads south east, passing Boswell's Home and crossing the Stafford Bridge over the river before arriving in Oakley. You then cross the Oakley Bridge before heading along the river and coming to the windmill. From here it is a short stroll back into Stevington.
