Wednesday B All-day walk – Wicken Fen and Upware

July 17 @ 10:15 am - 2:45 pm

Start time: 10.15

Walk length: Around 7 miles in total – 4.5 miles before lunch and 2.5 miles after lunch.

Walk details: Sections of the walk may be muddy depending on rain in the week beforehand. There are no stiles but there are a couple of steep bridges.

Meeting place and parking: The National Trust car park at Wicken Fen, 15 Lode Lane, Wicken CB7 5XP. This is free for members of the National Trust, so if you are a member please bring your membership card so we can scan cards for free parking for as many vehicles as possible.

Directions from Cambridge: Take the A10 north. At Stretham, follow signs to A1123 in the direction of Wicken Fen. (3rd exit off the roundabout.) In Wicken village, turn right onto Lode Lane signed to National Trust Wicken Fen car park and visitor’s centre. Car park is on the left after 0.2 mile.

Lunch arrangements: At the “Five Miles From Anywhere No Hurry Inn”, Upware. The pub will be expecting us, but doesn’t take pre-orders. The service is generally fast, and they often cater to walking groups. The menu is on their website: https://www.fivemilesinn.com and it might be worth having a look ahead of time to see what you might want to order when we get there. Dogs are welcome in the garden on leads but not in the pub.

If you are bringing a picnic, the leader will show you where there are benches in a nice spot on the approach to the village.

Leader: Ruth

Booking: Please can you let Ruth know if you intend to walk by 6pm on Monday 15th July….that way she can give the pub an idea of how many to expect.
