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. In 2015 this is still close to becoming a legal agreement, but so slow.
