Overview

From Barkway Recreation Ground we head over to Reed.  Then, if the weather is good, we get a panoramic view North over Cambridge and Ely, before descending to Hatchpen.  We cross the Newsells Park Stud to the boundary of Royston, before returning via the hamlet of Newsells.  Finally, we have a steep climb back to Barkway.
