Walks Around Arlesey

Arlesey is a Bedfordshire village situated in the Hiz valley within easy reach from Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and beyond, by bus, train or car.

The walks range from 1-43/4 miles, and one of 9 miles for the energetic walker. Good public houses plus small shops on most routes. The walks pass local rivers, a medieval bridge, lakes and a large country house and have a wide range of wildlife to observe.

The walks were put together by locals for locals, and for people further afield to enjoy the varied countryside around a village listed in the Doomsday Book. All the walks are easy walking.

One pleasant riverside walk (No.2) is easy access with blue badge parking close by and disabled fishing facilities. Good bus and train services to walk starting points – parking is always close by.
