Start time: 10:15

Walk length: 7.9 miles

Walk details: 4.7 miles in the morning, 3.2 miles after lunch. Walk starts in Elmdon and heads to Great Chishill before returning to Elmdon.

About 1 mile of road walking (with adequate verges, mostly in Great Chishill), several fields to cross on well-trodden rights-of-way, great views, two stiles but each of them has a gate right next to them that we can use.

Directions and parking: From junction 10 on the M11 (Duxford Imperial War Museum) take the A505 towards Royston. Turn left after the pet crematorium and follow the road through Chrishall Grange, following signs for Elmdon. Turn left by St. Nicholas’ Church into Ickleton Road. Follow the road for about 200 metres and you will see the old school on the left. You can park on the right-hand side near some terraced houses, called School Row, or just beyond.

Meeting point: Walk back towards St. Nicholas’ Church and meet up on the small green on the Ickleton Rd just below the church – Post Code CB11 4LT, OS Grid Reference: TL462 397.

Lunch arrangements: Lunch at the Pheasant Inn, 24 Heydon Road, Great Chishill, SG8 8SR. Inside and outside tables available. Dogs are allowed indoors and out. Dry boots ok.

Those eating a packed lunch, there is a small green a few yards along the road from the pub and a bench in the church yard opposite. There is even a bus shelter next to the green with a seat, if shelter is needed. The pub requests that we do not eat our own food on the premises.
