Walk length: 7 mile circular walk from Upware to Wicken Fen and back. It is flat walking on riverbanks and gravel tracks, with three steep footbridges and very little mud.
Meeting place: Environment Agency Car Park, Upware Road, Upware, CB7 5YQ.
Directions from Cambridge: A10 towards Ely, at the Stretham roundabout turn right onto the A1123 towards Wicken. After passing over a large concrete bridge, continue for about half a mile and take the right hand turn signposted for Upware and Swaffham Prior. Follow this road until you reach Upware. In Upware go round a 90 degree left hand bend and the Environment Agency car park is on the left just before you get to the river.
