Geo-Trips :: The Bucks/Northants borders

Towcester

A drive from Dunstable, Sat, 28 Dec 2019 by David Howard

It was one of the shortest days of the year, but the route north towards Leighton Buzzard is very quick at the weekend, and the endless series of traffic lights in Dunstable actually seemed to flow rather than simply block all movement for at least 10 minutes. As a result once I'd got to Buckingham I still had time to carry on north to Towcester, before turning back on the A5 all the way home. The rain had finally stopped at the weekends so allowed more freedom to wander around without getting soaked.
