Upware & Wicken Fen

Dscn1747_855_x_642

As can be seen from the picture, Ramblers look better behind bars!  It was a dicey drive to the start of the walk today and a number of road accidents were reported in the area. Thankfully none of our walkers fell foul of the icy roads although a few did report the odd slip and slide along the way. It was a beautiful sunny winter’s day and a total of 24 walkers turned out today; about half of which were from outside our own group membership.  We had a leisurely walk from Upware to the visitor centre at Wicken Fen, seeing a Barn Owl along the way.  After a 30 minute refreshment break we made our way back to the cars walking alongside Wicken Lode before crossing over the bridge in the picture to walk alongside narrow boats moored on the River Cam.
