The excuses for not walking could last no longer (I was recovering from the SWCP...honest) and with another stunning day forecast I thought I should get back out there. I remembered to use some sunblock this time but could of done with a hat! Today's walk was into the unknown of North Bedfordshire. I just never got round to coming up here, there isn't much in the way of anything to drag me up here.
The small villages are nice and quiet and in many ways represent traditional rural England, bit old, bit new, bit thatched. Yelden (Also spent Yeilden and Yeldon depending on which road sign you see, no really it has no official spelling...add a bit eccentric to the list!) is a quiet village with just 1 pub and the remains of a Motte and Baillie castle. See only in England could the remains of a castle be so nondescript!
