Bedfordshire Walkers

Bedfordshire WalkersNow in it’s 3rd year, the Bedfordshire Walking Festival is back and bigger and better than ever.

Between 8th and 16th September, a series of guided walks will take place across Bedfordshire, with the intention of getting you out and about, and enjoying the countryside. These range from strolls of a couple of miles, to 2-day hikes, so there is something for everyone.

Many walks are accessible from the line, including the Bedford to Bletchley Rail Users Association’s own ‘Railway Ramble’ on 8th September – a 13.20 start at Ridgmont. A full programme of walks can be viewed on the Bedfordshire Walking Festival website

As well as the guided walks, there are loads of other walks that you can easily do from the Marston Vale Line. So check them out!

    Wasn’t the ROF Elstow a refugee camp when it ceesad making munitions? I lived in Stewartby from 1935-52, and Ican remember seeing the hundreds of residents from Elstow going to, and leaving the stewartby brick works. I think most of these displaced people came from the Balkan States, fleeing Russian rule. Most of them had racing bikes . The favourite colour seemed to be yellow. It always reminded me of The Tour de France at knocking off time at the brickworks.
