Walk Guides

Walks update

We are gradually completing the walks to link up the whole of the Fen Edge from Peakirk, near the Lincolnshire border in the northwest, to Isleham, near the Suffolk border in the southeast, and around the islands – the ‘Isle of Ely’, March, Chatteris, Whittlesey, Thorney and Wisbech.

The map shows the routes of the walks that are already published and others that are currently being planned. See below to download the published Walk Guides and for the list of walks.

Walks published so far: 10

Due 2021/2: 9

Each Walk Guide contains two maps, one giving directions and the other showing the landscape of the area, including the contours and geology. It also gives practical advice as well as information on features and places of interest to be found on the walk. The walks are shown below in geographical order starting near Peakirk, north of Peterborough, and finishing at Isleham, followed by the 6 islands. Download by clicking on the Walk Guide images.

Printed copies are available for a small charge – please email us to arrange collection from convenient location. If you use a GPS and wish to have the GPX file for a walk, please contact us and we will send it to you.
