Help connect Littleport

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 Littleport’s Slow Ways.

Overall this is great if bridge is closed over the river in Elylit1 but as now open not a lot to choose between them....

Other than that an easy route - quite a bit of long grass to wet the shoes and a lot of pavement/road walking so not as scenic as route 1 which is more direct!!...

Generally good off road surfaces - stile and gates on route - generally off road and along river. Could have gone to Ely station as route went near to that and accessible from there....

Walk this route

Wasn't completely clear if you could walk along the edge of the river immediately south of Victoria Street in Littleport but there's an easy diversion down another footpath a little further along which quickly reconnects you to the river. A number of stiles to climb over but good to be off road for most of it - though there aren't many places to shelter from the rain on the river section if it's a wet day, and no facilities outside of the towns it connects....

The first half of the route between Ely and river takes in some areas of housing and then skirts through Ely Country Park and areas of common land, rich in vegetation and wildlife....

I like the idea of there being a route that doesn't simply use the riverside between Ely and Littleport, but this one unfortunately doesn't work!...

A short stretch of footpaths amid the various rail lines in the area gets you to the walk along the River Ouse. From there, it's a straightforward walk all the way to Littleport....

Walk this route

I walked from Littleport, but the footbridge was closed, therefore continued on along the river, eventually coming into Ely by crossing the river on the main road bridge south of the town. After that you can go back up the river and into the town, but I went to the railway station. If the bridge is going to remain closed a new route is needed, perhaps keeping on the West Bank of the river....

Walk this route

It is a pleasure to walk and straightforward to follow, no need to worry about which way to go so your time can be spent admiring the scenery and dreaming....

Walk this route

It’s generally a straightforward route, the only issue being that the pedestrian footbridge across the River Great Ouse around 1 Km south of Queen Adelaide is currently closed, with access to the footbridge blocked by wire mesh fencing....

After the river bends away from the road at the Denver Cruising Club the walk is quieter and more pleasant, though the minor road between Ten Mile Bank and Denver Sluice was busier than we expected....

Walk this route

Grassy path (river bank) all the way from Queen Adelaide to Littleport. Grass path is sometimes over grown and cows can be found grazing. Not suitable for wheelchair users....

Walk this route

From Hockwold to Lakenheath and then Sedge Fen to Lakenheath, the path is on dangerous roads. While it is straightforward to follow, it is not safe. I would not recommend this route....
