Harrold - Odell Circular Walk

This circular walk explores the villages of Harrold and Odell and the surrounding countryside. Harrold Odell Country Park and Odell Great Wood are great for wildlife and All Saints Church Odell and Podington Airfield offer an insight into some of the local history.

The main car park is at Harrold-Odell Country Park situated to the north of the River Great Ouse, between Harrold and Odell on the Harrold to Carlton Road.

Start/Finish Point
Harrold-Odell Country Park is the suggested starting point. The walk is described in an anti-clockwise direction from the park. However you can begin at any point and walk in either direction.

General Information
Distance: 6 miles / 9.5km      Time: 3 hours

There are toilet facilities and refreshments available at the Country Park during the opening times. Harrold and Odell both have public houses that serve good food.

Tips For Enjoying Your Walk: Parts of the walk can become muddy especially after heavy rain, so strong waterproof footwear is recommended. Take care where conditions are rough and do let someone know where you are going. Please be aware that much of the walk is unsuitable for wheelchairs and difficult for pushchairs.
