The Ouse Valley Way

Starting at the Mill, (1) goes under the Mill towards the lock (which is actually in Hemingford Abbots) and from here is a pleasant walk or cycle ride to Godmanchester or Hemingford Abbots.

Or, in the other direction from the Mill, walk diagonally across the first field (2) in the caravan site to the kissing gate on Love Lane (7), turn right and follow the footpath to Thicket Road. Turn right again walk to the end and then over the white bridge to St Ives (10). This is a very popular walk and a much more pleasant way of going to St Ives than along the A1123. For the more adventurous, after the last house on the left go over the style on to (8), walk diagonally north east, over a small bridge and into the bird sanctuary.

There is car parking on the National Trust property at Houghton Mill and during the summer season a tea shop. All year round we are fortunate to have 2 village pubs offering refreshments as well as a thriving village shop and post office.
