Geo-Trips :: Across the fens

Guyhirn

A drive from Roxton, Sat, 12 Jan 2019 by David Howard

There was a pre-Worboys sign in Chatteris which was one of the last on my list to get. I worked out how long I needed to get there and back before it got dark, and as it was all major roads took the minimum expected and got as far as half way to Huntingdon before it was completely dark. It's an area I've barely visited, but fairly featureless as you'd expect with just wide flat fields, farms and typical East Anglian villages. But the sign was there and being early carried on to Guyhirn to cover some more territory to the north.
