Thursday 15th September Sundon Hills Walk on Bedswalkfest

This was the second walk led by TRC on the Bedfordshire Walking Festival programme.
The 5.5 mile walk that started from Sundon Hills car park, was led by Tony Roberts & had 12 walkers
We left the car park by the gate at the south end of the car park & walked across a meadow to another gate which led into the woods. After a very short flat path we soon came to some steps down & then up. This led into the old chalk pit which still has craters from mortar practice by American troops during the 2nd world war. We climbed out of the chalk pit to admire the wonderful views over Bedfordshire.

We then continued our way along the base of the hills before turning off up a steeply rising path to cross the road & enter Sharpenhoe Clappers car park.. We had a short break at the seats & table for refreshments. We then circumnavigated The Clappers before leaving to again cross the road and enter the woods. This led along the top of the hills back to the car park.
