Join us at Bedford Memory Walk, where we'll be walking around the picturesque Embankment by Longholme Boating lake and through Priory Park. Starting in Everard Meadow, on the south bank of River Great Ouse, the short 2km takes you around the Longholme boating lake. This route is suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs (please note that the start area and main parking is on grass). The longer route goes around Priory Park’s lakes, fields and woodlands, before finishing with a walk around the Embankment area. This uses a mixture of paved footpaths, grass and woodland paths, so is not pushchair or wheelchair friendly.

Please note the routes are subject to change and the event site is on grass. 

Don't forget your wellies and walking boots!

How to get there

There is strictly no event parking at Priory Park. Please use public transport and city parking where possible. There is limited parking in Everard Meadow, off Cardington Roundabout by Longholme Way, which can become congested on exiting the event.  

Register yourself or a team today and join thousands of others to walk for a world without dementia!

Registration will close Thursday 21st September 2017 and you will not be able to register at the event. So sign up now and get your team members to do so too!
