From Bunyan to Steward

Brian Kerr returns to look at two historical figures in the history of the Bedfordshire landscape – Bunyan, with his intimate knowledge of the landscape inspired by his walks through the countryside, and Steward, whose business decision to move the brick making industry here had a huge impact.

Talks are approx. 1 hour long, with time for questions. 

As there is a cost involved in putting on the Learning Lunchtime talks, donations to the Forest of Marston Vale are much appreciated. Parking charges also apply. Friends of the Forest get free parking all year round* at the Forest Centre - click here for more information
