Cycle Route


Recently acquired by the Marston Vale Trust, the Grange Estate lies at the heart of the area destined to become the Bedford River Valley Park. This area has surfaced paths for cyclists, walkers and horse riders to enjoy the mosaic of wet and dry woodlands, wetlands and grasslands planned for the future.

Willington is situated on the A603 about 4½ miles east from the centre of Bedford.

The nearest public car park is at Priory Country Park, Bedford.

The area can be accessed from the National Cycle Route 51 from Sandy, Cople and Bedford and from the Danish Camp in Willington.
