We visited the Classic car show last night. the area is beautiful, calm and offered a lovely back drop to the magnificent automobiles. A history of the village was shown with photographs and stories. Tea and cakes served...how very Willington !

These buildings are the only National Trust properties in Bedfordshire and I am lucky enough to live in the village. They have a fascinating history and are well worth a visit especially when opened up to the public on a bank holiday. Can thoroughly recommend.

Drop by to see the dovecotes and combine it with a great walk around priory park, you can do a circuit and drop by the Danish camp for tea and delicious cakes. Great way to spend an afternoon.
