This walk is 5.5 to 6 miles and begins near Great Abington post office and shop (CB21 6AB). To get there take Hills Road out of Cambridge towards Haverhill. This becomes the A1307. Continue over the junction with the A11 towards Haverhill. The second turning on the right, just past a petrol station, leads into Great Abington High Street. Follow the road round until you get to the shop then turn left into Linton Road. Park on either side of the road about 200-300 yards down. We will assemble there and start walking at 10am.
From Linton Road we will follow a public footpath to Hildersham village. This involves crossing the A1307, and due care will be taken. From Hildersham across meadows to Little Linton, then back across the A1307 and through Camgrain storage depot on marked path. From there a track takes us up to the top of a ridge, with views of Cambridge and possibly Ely, and then back down into Great Abington. Inevitably there will be muddy patches in places, so suitable clothing and equipment is advised. No stiles but plenty of gates! The walk can be shortened by about half-a-mile at the end, by taking the road and bypassing the picturesque footpath.
