The Ramblers’ Association has recently run a competition to identify Britain’s Best Walking Neighbourhood – and Cambridge City was successful in making it to the last 10 out of 80 contenders! The winner, Falkirk, was decided by popular vote on the Ramblers’ website and was announced on Wednesday 10th July at the House of Commons. The Ramblers’ website shows the 10 urban neighbourhoods which made it through tough competition to the short list. A video film was made to showcase just why each neighbourhood has been proposed and CRC (and Ramblers) members Jill and Jane appear in the Cambridge film. Many of us take Cambridge for granted – but what other cities or towns offer such wonderful green commons and open spaces so close to the centre? On a Spring day, what urban views are better than the scene when walking along the Backs? And the city centre does a good job on keeping traffic at bay.
