Toddington/Chalton railway section (near Toddington Motorway Services)
This section (Chalton PF15 & Toddington PF56) running N-S parallel to the railway, next to Toddington services, is shown as part of the trail but is actually currently dedicated as a public footpath on the definitive map.
Half of the land is CBC owned and used for a ‘leachate plant’ (a small sewage works) for ‘run off’ from the adjacent restored landfill site – other than the CBC bureaucracy this should not be difficult to get formal agreement to upgrade. The remainder of the route is a field edge footpath running parallel with the railway which Network Rail own. 2012 saw positive discussions with Network Rail to upgrade the route to bridleway standard.
