A circular walk from the beautiful cathedral city of Ely in Cambridgeshire. The walk leaves the market square to head out along an ancient lane to reach a viewing point at Rowsell Pits nature reserve, before returning along the River Great Ouse and through the city gardens. There’s a chance to visit the famous cathedral, great views across the nature reserve and you can enjoy the tranquillity of this stretch of the river. The walk is mostly flat with just one descent as you leave the market place and then one long and steady climb through Jubilee Park to reach the cathedral. There are no stiles, two kissing gates and a number of steps to cross over the footbridge. The paths are a mixture of pavements and tarmac/stone park paths which are all well made. The meadow alongside the river is often used to graze cattle so take care with dogs as you pass through here. Approximate time 1.5 hours.
