Queen Edith’s Walks – No.8: Explore the Roman Road

The Queen Edith’s Community Forum has published a free, 32-page booklet called “Summer in Queen Edith’s”, with local walks and activities for all the family.

This is one of a number of walks produced as part of the Summer in Queen Edith’s booklet in July 2020. You can find out more here about the booklet and the other walks and activities in it.

As noted on the Beechwoods Walk, Wort’s Causeway follows the Roman Road to the south of the city. This walk continues that ancient route. It would be great if it joined up directly with the Beechwoods walk but unfortunately there is no safe footpath onwards up the hill past the Beechwoods. You will either have to drive/cycle and park at the top of the hill (there is a parking space); or catch the 13 bus from Addenbrooke’s and get dropped off at Wandlebury Country Park, then walk through.

Full details of the Roman Road, its history and its nature can be found in this excellent leaflet here from the Friends of the Roman Road and Fleam Dyke.
