10 Fenland Ramblers members met on a lovely sunny Sunday morning for a walk from Snailwell, through Chippenham Fen to Fordham and then on to Landwade Hall. My “talking” GPS on Endomondo made it 9.76 miles but the GPS tracklog clocked it at 9.28 miles. I’m more inclined to believe the latter, but either way it was a little longer than the forecast 8 miles and a few of us were feeling it by the end.
We crossed a couple of muddy ploughed fields before entering Chippenham Fen. This is wet at the best of times and the recent rains meant that it was under water in parts. The highlights of the walk were the Aconites and Snowdrop in the grounds of Landwade Hall.
