Our Aim is to investigate, enhance and promote knowledge & enjoyment of our local heritage.

Two Moors Heritage Trail

This gentle 5 mile walk is a good introduction to the landscape of the area. The route passes several sites of interest for their wildlife or history.

Flitton Moor

Flitton Moor is a Local Nature Reserve managed by Central Bedfordshire Council. It is a complex of ditches, ponds, grassland with wildflowers, and tree belts, including a small osier bed.

THE FLIT VALLEY DISCOVERY CENTRE

From old tractor shed to invaluable shelter, FDHG breathed new life into this key site, which would later be renamed after local man Jack Crawley.

News & Events

During 2020 and 2021 we have not held any of our usual events, although we have recently started tasks on Flitton Moor and on footpaths. However, we have plans to hold the Duck Race at the end of August – click on View All News &Events for further details.

We intend all of our usual events to be back next year.

Explore Safely

Please take care when walking around the area.  Note that paths and boardwalks can be slippery when wet.  Please keep to the paths and follow the Country Code.  Take all litter home and leave only footprints.  Appropriate footwear is always advisable and it’s a good idea to carry binoculars for spotting wildlife.
