Sunday C Bassingbourn ‘butterfly walk’

July 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

From Cambridge, there are two main-road options to get to the meet/start point in Bassingbourn by car (both routes take about 30 minutes).

1. Take the A603 Barton/Sandy road to the Arrington roundabout. Take 1st exit onto A1198 Kneesworth/Royston road and follow for just under three miles to reach Kneesworth. At first mini roundabout in centre of Kneesworth, take 2nd exit onto The Causeway (signposted Bassingbourn). In half a mile reach Bassingbourn, go past The Hoops pub on left and shortly afterwards a Spar shop/post office on right. In 200 yards after shop, turn left into South End. Continue for 100 yards to reach the village recreation ground on left.

2. Take the A10 to Royston. At the first roundabout on the outskirts of Royston, take 3rd exit onto the dual-carriageway Royston bypass. At next roundabout, take 3rd exit onto the A1198 Kneesworth/Bassingbourn road to reach Kneesworth. At second mini roundabout in centre of Kneesworth, take 1st exit onto The Causeway (signposted Bassingbourn). Then as above.

Park in South End road, Bassingbourn, alongside the village recreation ground. Nearest postcode SG8 5NJ. Meet outside the main gates of the recreation ground.

The walk starts at 10.00 am. The full route is just under 4.5 miles but there is an option to take an easy-to-follow shortcut back to the cars to make a walk of 3.25 miles. The walk includes a small nature reserve, springs and a chalk stream, a wildflower meadow, several woods and open farmland. The terrain is flat, on good tracks/paths, with no stiles. If the weather is dry and not too windy, we will hopefully see a good range of butterflies – but after all the wet and cool late spring/early summer weather there is no guarantee!

To book a place on the walk, please email phillipjhastings@gmail.com or text/leave voicemail message on 07716 992847 by 6.00 pm on Saturday July 6.
