We have walked part of the Greensand Ridge Walk many times. We enjoy the countryside very much. There are good pathways in our opinion.

The walk itself is a continuous line but there are nice walks in the area. What you can do is park in Ampthill pal and walk round there. If you want more of a walk than that you can go into Ampthill, past the church and over... More
