Great Eversden and the Mare Way

Walk Location: 

The hills between Great Eversden and Wimpole Hall are a wonderful spot for walking, criss-crossed by footpaths, with delightful views across open countryside and also enclosed tunnels through dense woodland. The path running NW-SE along the ridge is known as the Mare Way.

As this map shows, there are numerous footpaths, many of them starting in Great or Little Eversden. My favourite starting place is Wimpole Road in Great Eversden - a turn off the 'main' road just opposite The Hoops pub.

If you follow this road until it passes farm buildings and becomes more of a track you can actually drive to the top of the hill, but I normally park near the farm and walk from there.
