The John Bunyan Trail

East England, 1-2 week

The John Bunyan Trail – 86 miles – 8 days – Sundon Hills Country Park to Sundon Hills Country Park (circular). This Trail takes you through the quiet leafy recesses of Bedfordshire; an unassuming county that was home to Puritan Evangelist John Bunyan – author of ‘Pilgrim’s Progress’ – to whose memory this Trail is dedicated. Before being incarcerated for his religious beliefs and writing his masterwork from prison, Bunyan worked as a tinker, and so he would have travelled many of the paths in the Trail as he plied his trade across the county. Make your own pilgrim’s progress as you move from the Chiltern Hills across the valley of the Great Ouse, before returning to the chalk again.

Hostels along route – Carlton; and across region.
