Wednesday B All-day walk – Trumpington Parks and Meadows

June 26 @ 10:15 am - 2:30 pm

Start time: 10.15

Walk length: About 6.5 miles (roughly 5 miles before lunch)

Walk details: The walk includes Hobson’s Park, Nine Wells and Trumpington Meadows Country Park. Mostly on footpaths or tarmac within the parks or on the busway, the section through Nine Wells can be a bit muddy, especially if there has been a lot of rain. No stiles or hills, but we will walk along a very narrow section of path through waist high grass along the edge of one field. This can be avoided by walking the other three sides of the field if required. No stunning panoramic views, but the wild flowers in the parks are beautiful at the moment.

After lunch we can extend the walk by a mile to include the area of the country park to the west of the M11 or shorten it and cut straight back to the P&R.

As the walk goes back through the P&R before lunch, anyone wanting a shorter walk could finish at that point.

Meeting place and parking: Start at main building at Trumpington P&R site.  Free parking.

Trumpington P&R is just of Hauxton Road close to Junction 11 on the M11. Postcode is CB2 9FT. See location map at – https://www.cambridgeparkandride.info/trumpington.shtml

Lunch arrangements: Unfortunately, there is no convenient pub or cafe for lunch. Instead, we will have a picnic lunch using benches at Trumpington Meadows Country Park.  Please bring sandwiches etc.

There are toilets at the P&R, which we will pass again on our way to the picnic benches on the meadows.

Leader: Caroline
