To discover more about our countryside, SPC has prepared a number of walks varying in length from 3.0 to 9 miles all starting and finishing from Silsoe Church. These can be downloaded below – each one includes a marked-up section of the relevant Ordnance Survey map for easy reference.

All of the walks follow public footpaths or bridleways, with the occasional short stretch of country road, or road crossing.
