Visiting Maulden Wood
Maulden Wood is easy to find and to get around, with good paths and picnic spaces. It's a friendly place, and with entrance free of charge it attracts many visitors every day. There's even a snack bar in the lay by at the entry.
Schools and community groups are welcome to visit the woods or get involved in the project. Visit will be tied in the national curriclum especially Science and Religious Education (RE).
While communities can run their own visits and programmes in the wood, LCOF and BCOF will run programmes towards celebrations of different faiths and traditions to bring people together and learn about each other towards tolerance and mutual understanding. In the context of Luton, the project ties in the Luton in Harmony Campaign led by Luton Borough Council.
The entrance to Maulden Woods is on the A6 just north of Clophill. Heading towards Bedford leave the dual carriageway following signs to the snack bar and lay-by. Heading towards Luton go to the Clophill roundabout and turn back towards Bedford, then follow the directions above
The main partners in the project are Luton Council of Faiths, Bedford Council of Faiths, the Forestry Commission, Greensand Trust and Grassroots Programme. The project is being funded by Natural England- Acess to Nature.
The web site of the Alliance of Religions and Conservation has lots of useful information on faiths and environment : www.arcworld.org
