Barton Springs is part of Barton Hills National Nature Reserve. It is a fine example of chalk downland and beech woodland in the north Chilterns. The whole site is open access, and there are a number of footpaths throughout making it a popular...more
Lovely area close to Luton for a small or larger walk. There is a small amount of woodland through which the streams run. It can get muddy. It's a steep walk up onto the hills. There are wild horses here.
Went over here on a sunny day with the boyfriend and honestly it’s so beautiful! It’s got quite a few hills but honestly such a lovely walk and day out, perfect for a picnic! So many friendly families and dog walkers around. The water is...More
Amazing place, great for walking and tremendous views, if you venture up the hills!
Shame it is often ruined by inconsiderate visitors who leave their rubbish behind. Just ruining the very reason they went there 🙁.
Highly recommend visiting, but please take your rubbish away...More

What an incredible place to walk. It has hills, woods, water and so many scents for our vizsla to entertain himself for hours. We loved the mix of terrain, friendly fellow walkers and incredible views.
A great place for a walk in unspoiled countryside following the line of the spring up to the source where there are amazing hills to climb if you want to. Lovely picnic spot by the source and completely unspoiled. Nothing there at all apart from...More

The most direct way to get to the Springs is to go straight up Church Road which peters into the path which takes you directly to the Springs - it runs past the cemetery and then along a stream most of the way. Almost oPposite the church, last but one house you will see it is called Springsway Cottage so you know you are on the right path . You will know when you are at the springs as you will be at the foot of the hills. You can also walk the other side of the stream which is prettier and cross the bridge to get back on the path near the cemetry. The bridge is great for pooh sticks and there is another smaller bridge closer to the Springs. On the way back, down Church Road, if you go down the footpath between the bungalow and the 3rd house from the hills you come into the recreation ground. At the far end is a good children's play area with climbing frames, see saw etc. Hope you have a great day maybe take a picnic the weather is supposed to be really good on Friday! Kind regards
