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.

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 the Walk Guides already published below.

Printed copies are available for a small cost (to cover printing and any postage)- please email us to enquire. 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. We hope to put all GPX files on the website for download at some stage in the future.

If you would like to know the route of a walk that is not yet published, look on the relevant webpage or contact us for the details. If you or your group would like to be a partner in the project and help plan the walks, please contact us.
