The images were taken from Theed Way. "A road known as the Thiodweg or Theed Way was first recorded in the Chalgrave Charter of 926 [HER 10843] but may have had a prehistoric genesis. It ran roughly east-west across south Bedfordshire for twelve miles, through the parishes of Leighton Buzzard (where it crossed the River Ousel at Yttingaford, or Tiddenfoot, site of a peace treaty between King Edward the Elder (899-924) and the Danes in 906), Billington, Stanbridge, Eggington, Tilsworth, Chalgrave, Houghton Regis, Toddington, Sundon and Luton where it met up with Icknield Way. The road was used to carry salt from the fens of East Anglia westward." source: http://goo.gl/5ali3P"
