Biggleswade, RSPB Sandy and a Walkin’ Cafe

Sunday 05th May 2024 11:00 - 17:00

Doors open: 11:00 am

Join Stag Walkers, a Ramblers group aimed mainly at people in their 20s, 30s and slightly older, to visit possibly the most unique landscapes of the Greensand Country and Bedfordshire as a whole.

Departing from Biggleswade station, we will head alongside the River Ivel, through Biggleswade Common and into RSPB Sandy, home to the biggest heath in the county and harbouring many wildlife species.

From here we will head towards Potton with stunning views over the Sandy quarry, which we should be able to enjoy on our packed lunch break.

As we head down the ridge, there’s the possibility to stop at the aptly named Walkin’ Cafe for coffee and/or a sweet treat.

On the way back to Biggleswade we will visit Sutton with its medieval packhorse bridge, where there’s the chance to visit the quintessential pub The John O’Gaunt for a swift refreshment before the end of the walk.

Booking your place: please book in advance using the Stag Walkers Meetup group at (free of charge)

Distance: 10 miles / 16km

Please note: This walk is not suitable for dogs except for assistance dogs.

Please bring a packed lunch/snacks and drinks, appropriate clothing for the conditions and optionally a basic first aid kit.
