This walk is actually in Huntingdonshire, a county which fell victim to the infamous Heatho-Walkerian local government reforms of 1974! It is a rural route through gentle countryside to the peace and serenity of Little Gidding, immortalized by T S Eliot in his 'Four Quartets'; and of adjacent Ferrar House, run as a community and small retreat by the Friends of Little Gidding. The aims of the Little Gidding Trust are 'the advancement of religion and in particular the encouragement of pilgrimage to Little Gidding'. I hope this walk will help!

The walk also passes the Hamerton Wildlife Park.

Information for Dog Owners: this walk is considered suitable for biddable dogs.

Really enjoyed this walk with woods, open countryside and fascinating churches. At point 4 where you enter the wood there are earlier gates that you can go through and walk through more of the wood, which we enjoyed and it wasnt too difficult to pick up the walk at point 5.Did this on a dry March day and not muddy at all!

I completed this walk in January 2014 during a wet period. The initial climb out of Sawtry is atrocious due to the churned mud on the narrow path. The same is true of the final walk back into Sawtry via the sports field. However, the remaining sections are really enjoyable with some great views and delightful churches.
