A circular walk through the gently rolling landscape of the Bedfordshire Hills, providing superb views of the countryside throughout. The walk starts from the ruins of Houghton House, said to be the inspiration for House Beautiful in John Bunyan's "The Pilgrim's Progress". The walk has several steady but long climbs and descents throughout and there is one stile (with an open fencing surround) and several kissing gates. The paths are a mixture of tarmac/concrete lanes and field edge paths the latter of which can get quite muddy after wet weather so waterproof boots are recommended. Whilst most of the farm land is arable, some of the fields may be holding cattle so take care with dogs. Approximate time 2.5 hours.
