A pleasant enough 11 miler for this walker's return to 'pastures old'. Starting out from the public transport arrival point for Centre Parcs Woburn, Flitwick station, the walker is soon aside the tranquil Flit river, following the Two Moors Heritage Trail. Crossing Flitwick Moor, it's then onto field-side paths with views to the Greensand Ridge. Lunch is had in Clophill, beside the Flit again, prior to a gentle ascent into Maulden Wood. The route then utilises the Greensand Ridge Walk, which also provides views of the North-Easterly extremities of the Chiltern Hills in the distance. Passing through the village of Maulden, the walk returns to Flitton and Flitwick Moors, but with a wonderful woodland variation to the morning section. A very pleasant return after an enforced absence for this walker, aided and abetted by some delightful weather.
