NEW: “Bloom Where you are Planted” – an Index of Posts of walks in and around the village of Harlington has now been added. Please click here.
The Greensand Ridge cuts like the Yellow Brick Road twisting and turning across the Bedfordshire Countryside. I am walking it during the easing of the coronavirus lockdown during the month of July 2020. My index of posts on walking the Greensand Ridge are set out below.
INDEX OF POSTS ON THE GREENSAND RIDGE WALK
A super 9 mile walk taking in a canal and river; meadowlands; deciduous woodland and conifer plantations; country parks;a stately home; heathland; rambling footpaths and farmland. Soft sandy terrain. Refreshments at beginning and end and Rushmere Country Park (if open). Highly recommended.
LEG 4 OF THE GREENSAND RIDGE WALK – AMPTHILL TO HAYNES (Clophill to Haynes section)
5 miles of mixed varied walking along the Greensand Ridge.
LEG 5 OF THE GREENSAND RIDGE WALK – HAYNES TO SANDY (Haynes to Northill section)
First 5 miles of this 7.5 mile section – easy walking – fields and woods, leading to the pretty village of Northill
Second 2.5 miles of this 7.5 mile section – beautiful Greensand Ridge country. Highly recommended (even with the A1)
LEG 7 OF THE GREENSAND RIDGE WALK – SANDY TO GAMLINGAY
Short 5 1/2 miles to finish this walk. Could easily be added to earlier sections. (Passes through Everton!)
TOTAL WALK ABOUT 40 miles. Terrain good throughout. Well-signposted – but would always recommend taking a map. Could be split up into different sections – not necessarily how I divided it or how the official guide divides it. Fairly supplied with refreshment stops on the way (Covid permitting). And all, not far from my Harlington home!
