We are always looking for new places to walk the dog, he loved this place and so did we! Stumbling across the war memorial made it even better, a little bit of history on a walk is always a bonus.

The views are the best part of the walk but there's also some lovely trees. Unfortunately when we were there there was quite a lot of rubbish on and off the tracks which rather spoilt the experience.

The clappers is a great open space to take dogs and children for a walk. There are stunning views over the Bedforshire countryside on a clear day. Ideal for picnics in the summer

Starting at the car park there are plenty of signs saying which path to take and for how long you wanna take it ( ranging from 1 to 3 hours, if I remember correctly). Lovely walks, keeping to the paths, and all easily signed every...More
