Walks

We’re aiming to complete a different circular walk in and around Cambridgeshire each week. We started with the Ordnance Survey book of Cambridgeshire Circular Walks, but have branched out from there. We’re keeping a record here – for our own interest and as a database of future walk ideas for ourselves and others – do try them out!

The map shows the starting points of the walks. The table below the map lists the walks, sorted alphabetically by starting location. Follow the link to the blog entry of the month in which we did the walk for details (including route maps for many of the walks).

“C” in brackets after a route indicates a walk from Cambridgeshire Circular Walks. “S” indicates a walk from Suffolk Circular walks. In both cases the letter is followed by the number of the walk in that book.
