Help connect Cambourne

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Cambourne’s Slow Ways.

(I had a deadline to be at Cambourne before the car dealer closed so, finding the old route across Bourn Airfield was no longer an option, had to stride vigorously along a less picturesque but slightly shorter northern route for the last bit from Highfields Caldecote to Cambourn. The Bourn route shown is much nicer if you're not in a hurry!)...
