The route is on top of the Hundred River bank with fine views across to the Welney marshes. These are fields which are allowed to flood in winter for visiting water birds. There are also fine views the other way of the rich black Fen countryside. The route continues along droves (a Fen word for tracks), field edges (one of which is part of the long distance path, Hereward Way), and country lanes. The route goes through two ancient and historic Fen villages, one with shops and a Inn. In winter it is wise to carry binoculars with you to see the wintering water fowl.

(Pymoor is sometimes spelt Pymore.)
