A very nice day's walking of around 15 miles in Central Bedfordshire. Leaving the hilltop village of Harlington, it's up to the Sundon Hills Country Park for some wonderful views over the surrounding plain. Continuing on towards the Neolithic hill fort of Sharpenhoe, lunch is had on a bench dedicated to Gordon Edwards, a Rambler who created this section of the walk. Lunch had, it's on past Sharpenhoe Clappers for further great views and then a steep descent into the plain below. From here, fine views of Barton and Pegsdon Hills can be had before another ascent into the hilltop village of Pulloxhill, which offers delightful views across to the aforementioned hills. Thereafter, it's on across more rolling grassy fields, through Westoning before a short-cut to Flitwick Wood, where a herd of cows at Wood Farm hindered this walker's progress. The wood was eventually reached, and the station not long after, but cattle are becoming increasingly aggressive in this walker's opinion. A fine walk, in glorious weather, albeit slightly harrowing towards the end. Bedfordshire offers some fine walking, rather surprisingly, to this local resident.
