Walks

We’re aiming to complete a different circular walk each week, mostly in and around Cambridgeshire although we’ve extended to an occasional Suffolk or Norfolk walk. Many of the walks come from the Ordnance Survey book of Cambridgeshire Circular Walks or the Suffolk / Norfolk equivalents. The FootPathMap resource is also useful. 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).
