Geo-Trips :: Around the fens 2

Wisbech

A drive from Papworth Everard, Thu, 14 Nov 2019 by David Howard

My pre-Worboys list grows as I search out new signs to photograph, and gave me the opportunity to cover new ground from Papworth to Wisbech, although it started getting dark when I left March. It was relatively dry (the last three trips were pouring solidly) so could wander a little without getting soaked. It's a very quiet route so easily undertaken any day of the week unlike in some directions.

Click the blue circles to see a photograph taken from that spot and read further information about the location. The blue lines indicate the direction of view. There is also a slideshow of this trip. ( )
