Bury Orchard is situated behind Church Road and Barton Road and was left in Trust to the village.  Harlington Parish Council maintains and manages the land on behalf of the Harlington Parish Land Trustees who ultimately decide what can/cannot happen on the land.  On the land there is a small orchard consisting of plumb, crab apple and pear trees.

As the photo suggests, there are a number of holes appearing on Bury Orchard which are being attributed to moles, rabbits and badgers.  Please therefore be careful when walking across the land, if not using the footpath.

New Dog Control Orders

These orders came into effect on Sunday 19th October 2014, and aim to cut down the amount of dog mess, restrict dogs from places such as children's playgrounds and ensure that people keep their dogs on leads in certain areas including cemeteries and where there are marked sports pitches.
They will make it an offence for anyone in charge of a dog to:
  • Fail to remove dog foul on any open land in Central Bedfordshire.
  • Allow it off a lead on any land to which a 'dogs on leads' order is in place - laws already apply to A and B roads and adjoining footpaths and verges, but are being extended to cover cemeteries, marked sports pitches and the car parks of some country parks.
  • Fail to put it on a lead when ordered to do so by any authorised council officer, dog warden, site manager or park ranger, if the dog is not under proper control and is causing a nuisance to others.
  • Allow their animal to enter or remain in an area from which dogs are excluded, such as enclosed children's playgrounds and multi-use games areas.

Anyone who fails to do so faces a fixed penalty niotice of £80 (reduced to £50 if paid within 14 days) - or a fine of up to £1,000 if prosecuted.

Central Bedfordshire Council provides more athn 600 dog waste bins, and accepts bagged dog foul in the 900 normal litter bins across the region.
