Circular Walk around Toddington Motorway Services
One of a series of circular walks around Toddington.
A 4¾ mile (7½ km) walk largely over arable with some grazing fields so it is good when the ground is dry, but can be difficult in places after recent ploughing. Much of the land is managed by Heathcote Farms who normally keep the paths clear of crops. There are twelve gates on this route, some fields may have grazing horses or sheep. In good weather with firm ground allow over 2 hours for the walk.
Advice for Dog Walkers – Subject to following the Country Code, for much of the route a dog can be off the lead, with the exception of some minimal distance along roadside pavements, the sections adjacent to woodland where birds are being encouraged to breed. There is a dog bin on Toddington village green. Dependent on the time of year there is water in various rivers, streams & ditches on the route.
There is restricted and unrestricted on-street parking around the centre of Toddington. Other parking is available at the Village Hall, off Leighton Road, subject to functions.
The walk starts at the old pump on the village green.
Length: 4¾ mile (7½ km) Time: Allow 2 hours
There are pubs, shops and cafes in Toddington.
