Old Warden Tunnel: As the path winds past mature hawthorn and blackthorn bushes, large ash and oak trees, it is hard to imagine that you are on top of a railway tunnel through which stream trains once passed.

Coming out of the woodland, you emerge to magnificent views of the countryside, with a steep cutting covered with grassland and scrub falling rapidly away from you.

How to get here


5 miles south-east of Bedford. Take the A603 from Bedford towards Sandy to the roundabout at the junction with the A421 Bedford bypass. At the roundabout, take the third exit towards Cardington. At the T-junction in Cardington village, turn right towards Old Warden. Follow the road for about 2 and a half miles, up the hill. At the top of the hill, on the left hand side, there is a small lay-by, signposted to the Greensand Ridge Walk. Park carefully here without blocking the gate to the trackway. Walk quarter of a mile along the Greensand Ridge Walk to the reserve entrance.
