Meldreth to Cambridge Walk

Today I was invited out on a walk by Caroline & Ray. We caught the train to Meldreth and then did the 18+mile walk back to Cambridge via Wimpole, Kingston, Hardwick and Coton. Interestingly this is the first time I have ever walked back to Cambridge in the past I’ve always walked away and then returned on the train. For today’s walk this had the huge advantage of having the sun behind us all day. Whereas on my last walk with Sally the sun was in our eyes for most the day, very uncomfortable at this time of the year when the sun is at such a low angle in the sky.

However, due to our speed of travel and stops at a couple of pubs we ended up walking from Coton in the dark – lovely clear skies and a very bright moon and Venus – but hazardous with the cyclists.

Here’s the walk with photographs.
