Bedford Purlieus Woods Car Park

Bedford Purlieus Woods Car Park

Old Leicester Road, Peterborough, PE8 6NN

Escape the bright lights of Peterborough and Stamford and spend an evening stargazing at this forest car park… There are good views towards the Sout, West and most importantly above; however, the Eastern horizon is behind trees.


Bedford Purlieus Woods Car Park is a Go Stargazing Site. The location has been identified by the Go Stargazing team as a good location for stargazing based on local light pollution levels, distance from nearby towns and cities and offers a safe place to park.
