North Bedfordshire Heritage Trail

70 miles (113 km)

A super circular walk around the North Bedfordshire countryside visiting twenty three villages, two country parks and around thirty public houses. The walk is often started at Bedford and then visits the following towns and villages: Biddenham-Bromham-Stagsden-Turvey-Carlton-Harrold-Odell-Sharnbrook-Riseley-Hatch End-Keysoe-Colmworth-Wilden-Roxton-Tempsford-Everton-Potton-Sandy-Northill-Cople-Ickwell-Old Warden-Willington.
Walk highlights include the National Trust owned Willington Dovecote and Stables (video below). This 16th-century stone-built dovecote and stable buildings are great for bird watchers with barn owls and kestrels regular visitors. Also of interest for birdwatchers is the RSPB run The Lodge Nature Reserve near Sandy and the delightful Harrold-Odell Country Park. Set in 144 acres, the Park's main features are two picturesque lakes.
The walk is waymarked with a blue and white disc.
