About

Greensand Country  

Defined by the Greensand Ridge, a band of higher ground stretching from Leighton Buzzard to Gamlingay, which rises out of the surrounding clay vales, Greensand Country contains all of Bedfordshire’s remaining heathland, more than half of its woodland and more historic parkland than anywhere else in the country. It is rich in wildlife and cultural heritage, with miles of footpaths and bridleways. The vision is for Greensand Country to be recognised as a highly attractive landscape with a unique history, wildlife and culture that will encourage people to visit, enjoy, understand, value and look after for the long term. The Greensand Country Landscape Partnership is led by the Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity and the Greensand Trust, and is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.  It is made possible by National Lottery players. Without them we couldn’t fund the project.
