Glenn's Twin? Wood You Believe It?

Leader: Adrian Moody

19 walkers, 15 miles

A very enjoyable day making a circuit of Bedford - the River Ouse - River Valley Park - Putnoe Woods - Twinwood Airfield - Bedford Park - back along the river.

Twinwood Airfield was a WWII training airfield. During the war many famous entertainers of the era used RAF Twinwood to fly from, because it was the closest airfield to Bedford - the secret headquarters of the BBC during WWII.
It was from RAF Twinwood in 1944  that Glenn Miller, the legendary WWII bandleader, boarded the plane that mysteriously disappeared, sparking a mystery that has fascinated the world ever since.
The old airfield lay dormant for decades until the present owners decided to restore the crumbling buildings and create a lasting memory to Glenn Miller and those RAF personnel who served at RAF Twinwood - now the Twinwood Airfield Museum.
