Frampton and Frampton Marsh Nature Reserve

From the charming Fenland village of Frampton, our walk takes us along a quiet lane, passing the Greenwich Meridian, before picking up a series of tracks and footpaths that lead us to the New Sea Bank. Climbing to the bank, you're rewarded not with the expected view of The Wash, but with marshland (apart from at high tides) to the horizon. These wetlands stretch along the entire western end of The Wash and are home to thousands of wading birds.

A brief detour left along the bank will reward you with some of the prime areas, though as we continue along the walk, the next few kilometres will offer plenty of similar opportunities.

It's worth a note that on this stretch of the New Sea Bank, you'll be following the MacMillan Way. This is a relatively new (2001) long-distance footpath running some 290 miles from Boston in Lincolnshire to Abbotsbury in Dorset and was created in support of MacMillan Cancer Relief.

After leaving the MacMillan Way and the New Sea Bank, we walk briefly along the Old Sea Bank (part of the Brown Fen Waterways Trail), before another quiet lane leads us back to Frampton Church. Reward yourself with a pint or meal in The Moores Inn, which is just across the road.

Dog-walkers please note the presence of some dog-unfriendly stiles and the possible presence of cows.

Walked 07/08/11 on a very blustery day. Parts are very dog friendly but lots of grazing cows along the North Sea bank and later along the old sea bank horses with young which were best avoided. Bracing and certainly blows away any cobwebs. Good pint back in Frampton at the Moores Inn.
