124 km / 77 miles

Beds, Herts
The Trail was created by the Bedfordshire Group to celebrate the RA Diamond Jubilee and is dedicated to the memory of John Bunyan, the Puritan Evangelist and author of the book 'Pilgrim's Progress'. The route passes through a number of attractive villages and scenic countryside, taking in many places of historic interest connected with Bunyan. There are links with the Greensand Ridge Walk, Icknield Way Path and North Bedfordshire Heritage Trail. The waymarked Clay Way (11 miles, map online) which follows the West Bedfordshire Clay Ridge is partly coincident with the Trail at Cranfield.
