North Beds Heritage Trail 1 - Bedford to Turvey 13/03/18

Our 2018 season got off to a great start with the best weather we have seen over the recent weeks. We started at St Pauls Sq in Bedford and walked along the banks of the River Ouse alongside the very new restaurants and housing estates. After about a mile and a half we turned away from the river passing through the new housing estate of Great Denham and the golf course of the Bedford Golf Club to the outskirts of Biddenham. From here we walked north crossing the busy A428 to reach the old main road through Bromham. We then headed west across the medieval bridge and passing Bromham mill before turning south and back across the A428, skirting Hangar Wood and through the Bedfordshire Golf Club to reach Stagsden. From Stagsden it was all countryside to Turvey with its Abbey and fine bridge over the Ouse. There was certainly plenty of heritage buildings on the walk. Much different to the modern estates we see in other parts of Bedfordshire such as Bedford itself and Bigglewade
