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 to surround the islands – the ‘Isle of Ely’, March, Chatteris, Whittlesey and Thorney.
The map shows progress of walks to date. See below for published walk downloads and a list of those upcoming. If you or your group would like to be a partner in the project and contribute to the walk details, please contact us.
Walks published so far: 6
There are two leaflets for each walk – the first is the Maps leaflet and the second is the Details leaflet. The first has two maps, one giving directions and the other showing the landscape of the area, with the contours and geology. The Details leaflet 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 in Peterborough and finishing at Isleham, followed by the 5 islands. Download by clicking on the leaflet 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.
