Circular walk from Houghton Regis on Sunday August 27th

Located in the south of Central Bedfordshire, Houghton Regis is a medium sized town and it is easily accessible from both the M1 and the A5 , which goes through neighbouring Dunstable. The ramble will commence in the town and this walk then abounds in fine views, and you will explore the Chiltern foothills around the upper reaches if Ouzel brook - crossing over towards Wingfield and a ridge with panoramic views. We will follow parts of the Chalgrave Heritage Trail towards the charming All Saints Parish Church just south of Toddington. Walking across meadows that still show the signs of medieval ploughing, past arable fields where houses stood more than 500 years ago, and with that we will make tracks back towards Houghton Regis.
