Details

This trail divides into 3 separate circular routes, loop 1 being the shortest and loop 3 the longest. The trail crosses a variety of terrain and offers the chance to discover some of the history of Biddenham and the possibility of seeing great crested newts and midwife toads in the village pond.

Start Point: The route begins at the Town Bridge in the centre of Bedford. Start Nat GR: TL024498

How to get there by car/parking: The village lies just to the west of Bedford and can be reached by road using the A428 Bedford to Northampton road. Parking is available in the Village Hall car park. You may use the Three Tuns car park if you use the pub for refreshments. Otherwise, on-street parking is available. Please park thoughtfully.

Notes: Route 1 is the shortest and the least strenuous. Route 2 is longer and part of it has a long stretch of tarmac path suitable for wheelchair access.
Route 2 crosses the busy A428 so care needs to be taken when approaching the
road.
Route 3 is the longest.

Walk Route: Biddenham (Historical interest)
