New walks will put a spring in your step



With romance in the air, visitors to East Cambridgeshire can set off for adventures and explore the beauty of the Fens with a series of walks now available at the Tourist Information Centre in Ely.

These new leaflets are the culmination of a three year European funded project to improve local walks and rides both for local people and visitors.

Taking in tea rooms, beauty spots and historical landmarks, these walks are a great way of discovering the fens. The walks cover various distances and allow for experienced or novice walkers to get out and enjoy the countryside.

The walks are part of a series produced by Cambridgeshire County Council and are called: Bishops Way, Wicken Way, Devils Dyke Walks, Cawdle Fen Way, Earthworks Way and Mepal Way.

The leaflets help to encourage the responsible use and enjoyment of some of the many public rights of way in Cambridgeshire.

Tracey Harding, Tourism & Town Centres Team Leader at East Cambridgeshire District Council, said: "Taking a walk in our countryside is a wonderful way to explore the fantastic landscape of the district. These walks take you through some amazing natural habitats and give you the chance to see an assortment on wildlife you may not even know existed. Take a walk along Love lane, enjoy many miles of bridleways or choose you favourite kissing gate out of the many installed through this project.

This project is supported by the Fens adventurers Local Action Group with funding from the Rural Development Programme for England, investing in rural development to support economic growth.
