Carina Drive

The Carina Drive site is in the green area just before Carina Drive on the left-hand side of Hockliffe Road (heading out of Leighton Buzzard).

The site was created in 2013 at the suggestion of local residents and with support from Central Bedfordshire Council.

We have created a flower bed area along the front but the creeping bent grass in the rest of the site is a major challenge. We have dug up two further areas with help from contractors working for the railway operators at the time, London Midland, and we are slowly increasing the wildflowers there.
