Sunday B Fig of 8 Walk from Ashwell
October 18 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
This walk is limited to 12 people and booking in advance is essential. Please text Pauline on 07766 250561 with your name and phone number.
Park near Ashwell Museum, Swan Street, Ashwell, SG7 5NX
The most straight forward route from Cambridge is to take the A10 (direction Royston) then A505 (direction Baldock/Stevenage). After 5 miles turn right (direction Ashwell) (Station Rd). After 2 miles left onto Ashwell Street. After 0.3 miles right onto Kingsland Way. 0.1 miles left onto Silver Street. 0.2 miles right onto Bear Lane. The High St is at the end of Bear Lane. Go down Gardiners Lane which is a dog leg continuation of Bear Lane. First right is Swan St. The Museum is on the corner of Swan St. Please park considerately in the village – not as a group.
The walk will begin at 10.00 in Ashwell at the junction of Newnham Way with Partridge Hill. This is to avoid a group of us gathering in the village.
To find this junction:- walk from the museum in Ashwell to the High St. Turn right passing the Bear House and then Wilsons Lane on the left. The road bends to the left and just after that you will find the junction of Newnham Way with Partridge Hill.
The fig of 8 walk is 7 miles in the morning with 3.4 miles in the afternoon. Please bring food and drink for the day.
