11:00am Biggleswade Green Wheel and a little bit more

Starting from Biggleswade Railway Station, Station Road, Biggleswade SG18 8AL.

OS GR TL 192 443

 

This walk is hosted by Stag Walkers, a Ramblers group aimed primarily at people in their 20s and 30s but all are welcome.

 

This leisurely walk of 9.5 miles will closely follow the Biggleswade Green Wheel, looping around and, at points, into the town. The route passes through Biggleswade Common, the largest area of Common Land in the county, and alongside the River Ivel. We’ll start by heading from the train station towards the Ivel Mill, and will follow the river for over a mile until we reach Jordan's Mill. From here we will walk past cultivated fields, and then into the edge of the town. We’ll then leave the town and walk on a path with Baden Powell Way and the new estate by our left hand side. After this we will reach Biggleswade Common, where we're likely to find some grazing cattle. We will find our way to the east bank of the Ivel and then finally back into town, returning to where we started.

 

Parking at station £3 or free parking at Rose Lane car park, Biggleswade SG18 0JT, 5 minutes walk from the station.

 

Bring a packed lunch or snacks and drinks.

 

Dogs are welcome on a lead.
