The National Trust’s Wicken Fen estate is organising 2 sponsored walks on Sunday 13th October – a shorter walk of 7.5k (just under 5 miles) and a longer walk of 12.5k (around 8 miles), The routes explore Adventurers’ and Burwell Fens. The money raised will support the Trust’s ‘Eyes over the Fen’ project. This will provide an elevated hide and higher viewing platform for a great bird’s eye view across the historic Sedge Fen. This project will also enable visitors to enjoy a panoramic vista during times of the year when some paths are rested for conservation reasons and will be widely accessible. Individual entry is £10, or £15 for a family. Please meet at the Visitor Centre at 11.00am.
For anyone who wants to go on a short training walk of around 3 to 4 miles, two free guided strolls are being organised on Sunday 18th August and Sunday 15th September. Both walks are free and start from the Visitor Centre at 11.00am.
