Please book by sending a text to Pam on 07982 453713.
The walk starts from the guided bus P&R car park, Meadow Lane, St. Ives PE27 4LG at 10 am. Parking is free and toilets are available.
At junction 24b (Swavesey/St Ives exit) of the A14 west from Cambridge, exit onto old A14 following signs for St Ives and take A1096 to St lves. At the roundabout, take the 2nd exit and stay on A1096, keeping straight on at traffic lights for guided bus crossing. At next roundabout take 3rd exit into Meadow Lane. The Park and Ride car park is off Meadow Lane on the right. The grid reference is TL320710.
There is an option to travel by the guided bus B which leaves Drummer street at 9.25 a.m. and arrives at the P&R in St. Ives at about 10.01 a.m, though I suggest you check this will be running on Easter Day (nothing on the website at the moment).
This walk is about 12 miles, about 6m morning and 6m afternoon. In the morning we walk to Houghton Mill, where we can have coffee at the NT café. We will eat our sandwiches by the river just as we get back into St Ives. In the afternoon we walk along the guided busway to Fen Drayton Lakes, then back along the river. It’s possible to shorten the afternoon by about 1.3 miles if the weather is bad.
