Sunday B Figure of 8 Walk from St Ives
November 3, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
The walk starts from the guided bus Park and Ride car park, Meadow Lane, St. Ives PE27 4LG at 10 am. Parking is free and toilets are available.
At junction 26 of the A14 from Cambridge to Huntingdon, exit left and at the roundabout go left onto the A1096 toward St lves and follow signs to the Park and Ride. The grid reference is TL320710.
There is an option to travel by the guided bus D which leaves Drummer street at 9.19 a.m. and arrives at the Park and Ride in St. Ives at about 9.50 a.m. There are currently signs up on the busway at Histon about works on the busway, but with no details or dates, and which may only relate to the current work between Histon and Orchard Park, but to be safe you’ll need to check beforehand that the buses are running. I shall probably come on this bus if running.
Link to bus times is
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 and can have a drink at one of the pubs or cafes in St Ives. If wet, one pub will let us eat our sandwiches inside. In the afternoon we walk along the guided busway to Fen Drayton Lakes, then back along the river.
