Wednesday A walk from Overcote

October 23, 2013 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The walk will start at the parking area on the bank of the River Great Ouse, map ref TL 362 711, postcode CB24 5NT. From Over, follow Overcote Road which then becomes Chain Road to reach the parking area. You will pass farm buildings on your left and a few bungalows on your right, and then go over a flood-bank raised section of the road, to then see the parking area to your left as you approach the river. (N. B. The map ref gives the best location of the parking area, as the postcode is for the last buildings you pass as you travel towards the river).

The walk will follow a circular route, 8 miles in the morning, 6 miles in the afternoon. It starts at Overcote, to go along the river, visiting St Ives, with lunch at the Pike and Eel, Needingworth Marina, to then go on to Earith before returning to Overcote. You might like to bring some binoculars to see what’s on the river.

The Pike and Eel has an extensive lunch menu, including baguettes, sandwiches, chips, soup and a range of lunch mains. Please see the menu available at (Pike & Eel Bar Snack Menu Oct 2013 to Jan 2014) beforehand as the choice is large. As the pub has asked for pre-orders, if you would like a pub lunch, please let me know your choice by 5.00pm on Monday 21st October. They are also happy to take further orders on the 23rd, if you decide to join the walk on the day.
