Welcome to the Friends of Putnoe Wood and Mowsbury Hillfort Mobile site.
The Friends of Putnoe Wood and Mowsbury Hillfort were formed in March 2011 and became a constituted group in May 2012. We assist and work with the Country Park Rangers and the Bedford Borough Parks Department at Putnoe Wood and Mowsbury Hillfort. In addition, advise and guidance is sought from the Wild Life Trust, Albion Archaeology, Opal, English Heritage and other relevant bodies.
Although we all come from different walks of life with varied hobbies and interests, the one thing we all share is our enthusiasm and dedication to both sites. As our name suggests we are a Friends group so irrespective of the type of task or activity we are involved in there is always time for chat, joke and of course the compulsory tea and biscuits.
In addition to the manual tasks we are actively trying to involve local residents by organising and promoting nature, wildlife walks, foraging, archaeological and history events. We are always looking for new opportunities to promote the Wood and the Hillfort but not at the expense of the eco-environment or the wildlife. One of aims is to collect and record as much information about the two sites as we can, this can be found on the pages of our main web site which can be accessed via the links below.
