Cambridge Castle Mound – need to preserve access to the Mound as a right

View from Castle Mound.

Cambridge Ramblers are about to apply for the path leading to the top of Castle Mound to officially become a Public Right of Way. This follows worries that access to the Mound could be withdrawn when Cambs County Council vacate the Shire Hall site. The County Council has issued a “Landowners Deposit” on the site and has said “…we have always allowed public access, but we don’t believe it is a public right of way.”

However, Cambridge Ramblers believe that access to the Mound is a right of way and has been for at least the last 20 years.

Please support our application by filling in the Evidence Form and sending to – send any queries to the same address.

In addition, some County and City Councillors have lodged an application for the Castle Mound and Shire Hall forecourt to be registered as a Town Green. You can support their application by contacting Cllr Jocelynne Scutt or Cllr Claire Richards

Update: Cambridge Ramblers have submitted the official footpath application, known as a DMMO, and this is currently being investigated by Suffolk County Council (who were delegated by Cambridgeshire County Council). [09/03/20]
