From Cambridge I suggest Madingley Road toward Hardwick and A428 towards Bedford. At Caxton Gibbet roundabout take (A1198) to Papworth and follow bypass to far end of village, at roundabout take first exit staying on A1198 towards Humtingdon. Take first left (Barnfield Raod) and follow into the village of Graveley. Follow this road through village into Offord D’Arcy, at mini roundabout take second exit to Offrord Cluny. Follow through village over mini roundabouts, take left turn (Station Lane) signposted Buckden and follow (through some tight bends by the old mill) and past Buckden Marina. At T junction take left turn onto Buckden High Street and follow through to roundabout on A1. Take second exit (B661) toward Grafham Water and follow through and out of Buckden. Taken second right turn signposted Grafham Water. Take second left turn into Marlow Park visitor centre (Anglian Water).
