Wednesday B all-day walk – Great Chishill and Chrishall

June 12 @ 10:15 am - 3:00 pm

Start time: 10.15

Walk length: The walk is approximately 7.5 miles, 5.5 miles before lunch.

Walk details: Good paths and quiet lanes with about half a mile along the road for the last stretch back into Great Chishill. Generally, very good underfoot with no stiles though there might be some small muddy patches in woodland. Some gentle inclines up to Chrishall Church and Chiswick Hall.

Meeting place and parking: Great Chishill Playing Fields Car Park, Hall Lane, Great Chishill SG8 8SH.

Christine will be asking for a £1 contribution per person for the car park – to go to the nursery who use the Cricket Pavilion on Wednesdays.

Directions from Cambridge: From Cambridge, get on to the A505 heading in a westerly direction towards Royston. At Flint Cross (Esso garage), turn left on to B1368, then take the first left on to New Road and follow into Great Chishill. At the T-junction, turn right on to Heydon Road. Follow the road, passing The Pheasant on the left. At the 4-way cross-road, turn left into Hall Lane (B1039), follow for approximately 0.3 mile. Almost immediately after passing Wallers Close on your right, there is an uphill driveway on your left which leads to the car park signposted Playing Fields/Village Hall. On Google Maps, you will see the building by the car park marked as Great Chishill Nursery (they meet in the cricket pavilion).

Lunch arrangements: Lunch is at The Red Cow, Chrishall. Please see their website for the menu –  https://theredcow.com/current-menu/
