The Grange Estate


Recently acquired by the Marston Vale Trust, the Grange Estate lies at the heart of the area destined to become the Bedford River Valley Park. This area has surfaced paths for cyclists, walkers and horse riders to enjoy the mosaic of wet and dry woodlands, wetlands and grasslands planned for the future.  There are several paths to explore that connect to the surrounding public rights of way network from Bedford, Cople and Sandy.
