Backpackers Cambridgeshire weekend 17 September

I met with the others this morning at Fenstanton. Not too many hills around here! We followed the River Great Ouse to Swavesey (which used to be an inland port) and then to Over where we stopped for a pint. Heading back to the river, we went on to Earith and back down the other side of the river on the Ouse Valley Way to a hotel at the marina near Needingworth where we are camped in the grounds.

Cambridgeshire - Thursday 15 September

Arrived here early for a Backpackers Club weekend so have some time to kill. A circular walk is called for with about three hours to spare. From Comberton, I joined the Harcamlow Way although the only waymark signs were for the Wimpole Way which uses the same route for some of the distance. The Wimpole Way is only 14 miles long, from Wimpole Hall into Cambridge (I think). Through a few villages, all very pleasant and undemanding.

On the map nearby was a Travelling Telescope. I've come across it before and looked it up but for the moment I've forgotten what it is.
