Horse Route

Greensand Ridge 2: Woburn-Ampthill Walk

Greensand Ridge 2: Woburn-Ampthill Walk

Details

Explore ancient woodlands (with spring bluebells) and farmland developed from former medieval deer parks. Approximately 7 ½ miles but can be extended to 12 miles by also riding the Warren ride at the byway in Steppingley (point 15 on map).

This route is mainly on public bridle paths, some through lovely woods and several field headlands, but there is some roadwork on country and village roads and you cross the M1 twice, on bridleway bridges with high parapets.

Eversholt is to the east of Woburn. From Woburn, take Park Street, then Old Water End, then New Water End. The farm is approximately 4 miles from Woburn.

Parking is by arrangement at Wakes End Farm,Eversholt,
MK17 9FB. Alternatively there is a small parking area at the bottom of the byway in Steppingley (just north of point 15). Please park well to the side and do not obstruct farm access. This is not suitable for lorries. If you plan to ride the Warren route as well, you can park by arrangement for a small fee at Woburn Forest Park & Ride in Fordfield Road MK45 2HZ.
