Really stunning views once up on the top of the clappers! Lovely place to get a breathe of fresh air.

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

Fairly small car parks that get crowded in summer, but I walk here as local. Don't forget to visit the Robertson memorial in the trees (1 of about 6 in England). The steps at the north end are not for the unfit!

Went here for a walk on a beautiful spring day. Lovely views. Wonderful countryside. Lots of cars in the car park, but still possible to get away from it all.
