  • If you fancy a tour of the area then a good starting point is the Bedfordshire Scenic Route leaflet, available at many of the local Libraries. Alternatively visit Let's Go for masses of information about walks, country parks, rides and nature reserves in Bedfordshire.

  • Lidlington is on the Greensand Ridge Walk. This 40 mile walk between Leighton Buzzard and Gamlingay passes through many picturesque Bedfordshire villages.

  • The Forest of Marston Vale, which surrounds the village, covers many square miles. Marston Vale Millennium Country Park and Forest Centre is within walking distance of Lidlington and is ideal for cycling, running or walking.

  • Why not try the nearby Stewartby Lake? This large expanse of water was a clay pit in the 1930s and with its long circular walk is used by boats both powered and those under sail. It is also sometimes the venue for British Power Boat racing.

  • For a more relaxing time a few miles further north is Bedford, our county town. The rowing club also has its annual regatta, the only carnival with a higher attendance in England is the London Notting Hill Carnival.

  • For those interested in Bedford you can check out the Bedford Football, Rowing, and Rugby Clubs.

  • Other nearby towns and villages include Woburn, Ampthill and Flitwick.

  • The Millbrook Proving Ground is nearby.
