The area around Danish Camp is part of the Grange Estate and Octagon Wood, a managed area of woodland and countryside which forms part of the Bedford River Valley Park. The Estate has had a number of developments and improvements in recent years making it more accessible and improving the overall landscaping – these developments are described here
The path that passes by Danish Camp forms part of Route 51 on the Sustrans Network. This means that it is a safe ‘off-road’ track that is suitable for walking, cycling and wheelchair use.
Enjoy riding and walking around the beautiful woodland and river routes and the newly extended ‘circular’ route that can be picked up just opposite the car park at Danish Camp.
Routes are clearly signposted for ease of use and are surfaced with either tarmac or firm gravel with easy gradients for effortless cruising.
