Sandy Information Centre Guided Walk - The Squires Walk
Date Added: 22/07/2016
The final Information Centre Guided Walk for 2016 is 'The Squires Walk, Sandy' which takes place on Thursday, 15th September, meeting at Sandy Town Council Offices at 2.30pm
This lovely walk goes amongst the greensand ridge hills, woodlands and heathlands in the countryside around Sandy. The walk is called the Squires Walk, as much of the route goes over the estate of the Pym family, who as Squires of Sandy have resided on their Hazells Hall estate since 1761.
We will see the beautiful wooded hills that form a back cloth to the town, climb the Pinnacle (or Sandhills) and see the wonderful views over east Bedfordshire. Walk along wooded bridleways and paths and cross Sandy Heath, now dominated by the tall TV mast. See the newly created heath land and the beautiful coniferous trees, birches and ancient trees at the RSPB’s reserve at The Lodge. Walk along the route of the Roman Road and see the former Peel family estate hamlet of Stratford, with its Swiss style buildings.
This Walk is part of the Bedfordshire Walking Festival. As this Walk is part of the Festival it is free
