This circular walk provides open views from the Gog Magog Hills before passing through the pretty village of Stapleford, the shallow Granta Valley and along a pleasant, tree-lined stretch of Roman road. The walk finishes at the Wandlebury Country Park inside an Iron Age hillfort, which is steeped in history and well worth an explore. Here there are toilets available and possibly a Popup Café, weather permitting.
