Colin Crosby Heritage Tours

Amazing Grace Tour (A Coach Trip in Bedfordshire)

The "Amazing Grace Tour" is one of the Coach Trips devised and led by the well known Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby, of Colin Crosby Heritage Tours.

These trips are an excellent way of soaking up some Local History.

It is a tour around the South Midlands and Home Counties, to pleasant towns which have considerable religious significance.

The coach leaves St. Margarets Bus Station, in the centre of Leicester, at 8am, and is due back about 9pm.

Colin gives his commentary along the way, pointing out places of interest and telling their stories in his own inimitable fashion.

There are three stops, each of about an hour.

Olney, most famous for its annual pancake race, was the home of John Newton, who wrote the song "Amazing Grace", and his friend William Cowper, the poet, one of whose works was "God Moves in a Mysterious Way".

Bedford is where John Bunyan, a local man who wrote the extraordinary book "The Pilgrim`s Progress", spent time in prison.

St. Albans, now an attractive cathedral city, stands close to the ruins of the Roman town of Verulamium. Where Britain`s first Christian martyr, St. Alban, was beheaded now stands the magnificent St. Albans Abbey.
