Walks in the Parish

Around the village and the Cambridgeshire countryside

Footpath (3) forms a very pleasant walk particularly with the dog. Starting at the campsite go east along the river through the kissing gate and follow the river round. Sandy Lane (11) leading to the end of Thicket Road. Meadow Lane (12) has recently been regenerated and is a pleasant walk through the village. Footpath (13) is a small shortcut to the A1123 opposite (25).

Footpaths (4), (5) and (6) cross the churchyard of our Parish Church. Footpath (9) is a small footpath leading from Love Lane (7) to Thicket Road opposite (14).

Footpath (14), The Lanes, runs from Thicket Road to Home Farm Road with (14a) leading further down Home Farm Road and (15) to St Ives Road. A popular route to other parts of the village avoiding the roads.

Footpath (16) from Chapel Lane to Green Lane is being upgraded as an alternative route between Wyton and the village centre without using the narrow path along the main road. Church Walk (17) leads to the old church yard with its association to the RAF.

Gypsy Lane (18) and Ruddles Lane (22 and 21) are pleasant rights of way through the Cambridgeshire countryside. Footpath (24) goes diagonally across fields to Sawtry Way; this is up hill and worth the views looking down on Houghton and Wyton, Hemingford Abbots and even Godmanchester. Footpath (23) is a short cut to Splash Lane.

Footpath (20) is a small footpath on common land by the duck pond (beware of the ducks!). Footpath (25) is another walk up hill to Sawtry Way and again the views are worth looking down for. Cottage Lane (19) is a short cut from the A1123 to Sawtry Way.

For an alternative route to the north of St Ives, footpath (25) goes down by the side of the houses at Wyton-on-the-Hill, leading to footpath (27) and St Ives.
