Richard Greenwood added Ramsti two, a new walk from Ramsey (Cambridgeshire) to St Ives (Cambridgeshire)

Walk this route

This is a good route which takes you off the beaten track in this part of Cambridgeshire which is dominated by the crossing points of the River Great Ouse....

DrGeoffSmith

Walk this route

Straightforward route on paved paths through common land, villages, national trust land and a long thicket (woodland/Riverside path). This is walkable, cyclable, would also be fine with buggies although Cow Lane (between Godmanchester and East Common, past the water treatment works, is a minor road with no pavement and lots of potholes....

Walk this route

The route then follows a path alongside a park and a few residential streets before crossing a main road at another pelican crossing. The next part of the route is on a straight and wide combined foot and cycle path (photo 2), then a left turn takes you on to a short road section which does not have a pavement but the verge is mostly wide and easy to traverse (photo 3). A well marked path takes you off the road and along a series of well walked footpaths beside fields (photo 4) and amongst trees, gradually climbing and culminating in what appeared to be an old route to Woodhurst and the village pond (photo 5). The next section was not totally pleasant as it first travels along a road with no verge, then follows some more paths alongside fields (photo 6) to reach the village of Pidley and the Mad Cat pub (photo 7). The route from Pidley to the next village of Somersham is about 1.5 miles totally alongside a road, but for most of this section there is a pavement or a kindly farmer or local council has very helpfully mown a walkable section of the verge (photo 8) so this was not a problem....
