From the middle of Ampthill, take the B530 towards Bedford. In 2.2 miles turn left (signed Stewartby). Go under the railway bridge, straight over the first round-about and just before the second round-about turn right into the car park. You will see The Kiln sign high on the building which is behind the Stewartby shop. (Please do not park at The Kiln if you are not planning to have lunch there. There is a small car park to the right of the shop or parking on the roadside.)
We need to pre-order food before we start walking. We will have a separate, huge, indoor dining area at the Café to ourselves.The walk will be through part of the Forest Centre to Millbrook Station and then, after a road walk, we will head across fields with expansive views of the Covanta Incinerator, returning to Stewartby via several tunnels under the two railways.
Proceed southwards down the M1. Leave at Junction 10 and travel along the Spur Road. Keep in the left hand lane and leave at the first run off.
At the round-about, go straight ahead along London Road towards Luton Town Centre. At the first traffic lights turn left towards Stockwood Park Golf Centre.Follow the road round to the right, then keep to the right. The road ends at the Car Park. There is no charge.
There are a couple of steeper climbs but there are no stiles and if it’s a nice day, there should be some lovely views of course.
