The Park is jointly owned by Central Bedfordshire Council and Greensand Trust.

Jon Balaam, director of development at Greensand Trust, said: “From the Greensand Trust perspective, we have been pleased to welcome the production company back to Rushmere Country Park for a second year running.

“It is managed by Greensand Trust, a local environment charity, and the filming fees have provided a very welcome boost to our income for the site, helping us maintain and enhance it for the benefit of visitors and wildlife, whilst not significantly impacting either.

“Our ultimate aim is for Rushmere to be environmentally and economically sustainable and this helps us move towards achieving that.”

Viewers of the Sky 1 game show saw contestants take on various challenges on a gigantic woodland obstacle course.

One of them dressed as a woodland animal, guided through the course by their partner, trying to find the gold coins buried in the woods.
