Walk details: A walk from Magog Down over the Gog Magog Hills to Babraham via Wandlebury and back. There are some gentle inclines, no stiles, maybe a little mud. A very short stretch on the pavement/cycle path along the A1307, only about 150 metres. Otherwise peaceful.

[If using the What3words app (gives location details down to a 3m square), the car park entrance reference is – ///casual.infringe.warns.] Magog Down is reached by a turning off Haverhill Road, which is signposted from the A1307.

Friends and Members who have a valid car park sticker can park free of charge. Otherwise, there is a charge of £3 per day. There are currently two car park ticket machines; one cashless, one cash only.
