Sunday B Walk from Cambourne

May 12 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Cambourne Morrisons Car Park, Back Lane, Cambourne, CB23 6EY

Please book by texting your name and phone number to Tony on 07566 219844.

Take the Madingley Road out of Cambridge and continue straight onto the A428 at Madingley Mulch. Turn off at Cambourne (~8 miles). Take the first exit as you come off the slip road at the roundabout onto Cambourne Road and then the first exit off the next roundabout in ~ 2-300 yards where there will be a sign ‘Great Cambourne’. Continue to next smaller roundabout in about 200 yards and take 3rd exit (ie right) and you will be in the car park for Morrisons.

Ideal place to park and meet is far left when driving in or far right from the front of the store.  It should be noted that although the supermarket does not open until 10am the cafe is open at 9:30 so facilities are accessible.

Start time 10am.  The walk is 10.5 miles – it is circular so you will need to take packed lunches and all refreshments for the day.  We will leave Cambourne towards the A428 and cross over to Coldharbour Lane. Passing through Hope Farm, which was purchased by RSPB in 2000, we will arrive in Knapwell and cross the road to join Thorofare Lane. After a coffee stop near the top of the lane we will walk onto Childerley and take paths towards Lolworth and Dry Drayton before ending back at Childerley for lunch break.  It is then a straight walk to Cambourne.

Details on Hope Farm can be found by searching Hope Farm Cambourne.

There are currently two sections totalling about 200 metres of very muddy terrain but hopefully by the date of the walk these have dried out.
