Summary of todays walk #1000miles
A mostly pleasant circular loop in the highest part of Bedfordshire (not really saying much!) from Lavendon, following the Three Shires Way to Santa Pod Racetrack, then back to Lavendon via Harrold.
Most of the route was through some great countryside along fields and through deserted woods. I didn't encounter a single other walker, bar a couple of dog walkers near the more built up areas. Only downside to the route was the long stretch on tarmac towards the end.
