Geo-Trips :: The old county of Hunts

St Ives

A drive from Stotfold, Thu, 22 Aug 2019 by David Howard

Huntingdon had been a place I either skirted or was forced through for the fairly long period when part of the A1 southbound was closed, so I decided to go there specially and cover as much of the area as possible. I'd never been into the centre before, and turned out to be a very small tight one way ring road, and when I turned off ended up on dead ends and roads which took you back where you started, so carried on and did the same to St Ives and Papworth coming back to spread the range.
