Sunday Cs Walk Willingham Fen 5.8 miles

May 12 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

Starting point: Rockmill End, Willingham CB24 5HY 10am
The walk is a little longer than usual, and there are no short cuts except for one which results in a rather, uninteresting walk, mainly along the main road and through Willingham, though with some rural parts – about two miles. Apologies – it seems to be the nature of the Fens that it is hard to cut across waterways etc.. We can take a second break if people need one, and the walk is generally flat. We will be walking on old, narrow, very lightly trafficked droves, along the river and back via the ancient pathway from Cambridge to the Isle of Ely. Hats are advisable.
To get to the start, leave Cambridge on the A14 and exit at the Bar Hill junction, taking the right exit from the roundabout to cross over the A14, joining the B1050 towards Earith /Longstanton/ Northstowe/ Willingham. Stay on the B1050 passing Longstanton and Northstowe. Approaching Willingham, the road becomes Station Road and then the High Street. Turn right into Church Street then left into Rockmill End just past the library on the left. Look out for Wilford Furlong (road) on the left and park just past the junction before the road curves round to the right to become Meadow Road. I will look out for people at the Church Street / Rockmill End junction.
If you would like to come, please could you call or text 07856875242 outside working hours please (I work from home usually and might be in an online meeting) or 01223 891645, also in the evening if possible. I very much hope you can come.
