Author Patrick Barkham walks the Fen Edge Trail
We were delighted that the author and Guardian nature writer recently contacted us to say he’d like to walk some of the Fen Edge Trail, A bonus was that the day he chose turned out to be the sunniest and nicest of the year so far and he was able to enjoy walking from Stanground to Yaxley and then from near Woodwalton village to Upwood. En route, he called in to the Fen View Heritage Centre at Farcet (soon to be opened), a couple of places in the Great Fen (near Holme Fen and Woodwalton Fen) and also the Admiral Wells pub at Holme village. Patrick enjoyed his time along the Fen Edge and is now a fan of this fascinating and (perhaps) unexpectedly attractive part of the county, as you can see from his article in the Guardian travel section, published last Saturday 21st April.
First walk on the Fen Edge Trail published
The first walk on the Trail, from Ramsey to Wistow, is now available for download from the Fen Edge Trail website. Part of our Geosites initiative, this project explores the Landscape Heritage of this important feature of Cambridgeshire. We hope to publish a further 4 or 5 walks this summer/early autumn.
