We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

The first section is safe and pleasant enough, going through the town of St Ives and up onto the Houghton Road towards Huntingdon. Plus there is proper footpath alongside the road all the way up to the Wyton roundabout A141/B1090. But after that, you have to walk along the edge of a busy main road, with no footpath and uneven, poorly maintained verges.

Things improve slightly once you get north of Old Hurst, as there is then a footpath alongside the road until you reach Warboys - although the path can become very narrow in places, putting you within a few metres of the heavy lorry traffic that utilises that road. Warboys itself offers a few shops and pubs to buy refreshments, an interesting burial ground and church, and a landmark of a clock tower erected to commemorate Queen Victoria's jubilee.

However, once you leave Warboys after passing the 30mph speed limit signs on the B1040 at the northwestern end of the village, the footpath again disappears. You are back to walking along the edge of the road or on the verge until you get to Cromwell Farm kennels, where a narrow strip of path becomes available.

The section of the route from Bury church, past the golf course to Ramsey High Street, is very pleasant. There are plenty of good pubs and cafes in Ramsey, assuming you have got there in one piece.

I'll upload an alternative walking route from St Ives to Ramsey as soon as I work out how to do that!.
