Walk Cambridge 2012

There are 6 walks that have been created to celebrate the Olympic games this year. If you do all 6 you will have walked a marathon! This sounded like a good challenge to me especially as I am keen to show the girls as much of the local area as possible! The rest of the walks can be found here (and this is where the map is from too!):
Today, with the loan of a friend's dog, we set off to do the green route which if you start and end at the station takes 4.4 miles (we started and finished from our house and it took us 8 miles :) ).  It is small child on scooter, pushchair and dog friendly walk.

It took in some lovely sights, from the old workhouse which then became the maternity hospital where my husband was born and is now houses....

to Parker's Piece ....

One my favourite parts of the walk takes in Laundress Green amd the mill pondwhich is where college washerwomen used to use the green for washing and drying. It is a small island. You get to it crossing the sluice at the end of Mill Lane where punt tours can also be taken.
