Self-guided walks


Central Bedfordshire Council's countryside access team have designed some nice self-guided walks, most of which are circular and stile-free. You can print out directions and maps.

Local self-guided walks include:

The Greensand Ridge walk is a long-distance walk of 40 miles (64 km) that crosses Bedfordshire, with brief sections in Cambridgeshire and Buckinghamshire. From its southern endpoint at Leighton Buzzard the route runs north-west to Gamlingay, following the Greensand Ridge, a distinctive feature that rises from surrounding clay vales to give a landscape of gently rolling hills and small valleys, often heavily wooded and rich in wildlife.

There is a full list of walks on the Central Bedfordshire Council website.

Lets Go is a great website with lots of walking resources.
