Two new leaflets have been produced offering guided walks in and around Shefford.
These have been made possible by the generous support of the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The first leaflet is entitled "A guided walk around the ecclesiastical buildings of Shefford".
Shefford is blessed with many listed and beautiful buildings. This walk focuses on the buildings with ecclesiastical connections.
At a leisurely pace it will take about 30 minutes to complete, and is flat and accessible.
The second leaflet is entitled "A guided walk around the Rivers, Canal, and Millennium Green of Shefford".
Shefford has three rivers (the Hiz, Hit and Ivel), a former Canal and many 'green' spaces. This walk will take about 45 minutes, but as it includes some steps and unfinished footpaths, sturdy footwear is advised, especially in damp or wet weather.
Copies of both leaflets are available free of charge in the church (you'll find them on the table in front of you as you enter).
We would like to acknowledge the help and assistance given in the production of both of these leaflets from John Burgess MA, Tony Dawson, The Shefford History Group, and Karen Brammer (photography).
