There are a number of interesting walks from Oakington and Westwick, usually into the countryside around or to one of the neighbouring villages. These are listed below, for an outline of the routes shown please see the associated schematic map.
The walks are described as starting from either the Oakington or Westwick end, but please note that there is no one-way system for footpaths, you can follow these paths in either direction in whole or in part just as you choose. Equally, although they have varying start points with the villages, you can easily make your way onto the walk from other village locations joining wherever it suits you.
You use these walks at your own risk; there may be the usual hazards of traffic, tree branches or roots, puddles, mud, nettles, brambles or other aggressive plants. Please take care so you do not reduce your enjoyment of our local countryside.
We are pleased to hear of any errors, or changes that you may spot, and we are always pleased to hear your comments about these walks as well as other aspects of transport within the parish.
PLEASE NOTE that from May 2018 to December 2020 building works associated with Northstowe are causing disruptions to access in certain parts of the area. This may at times affect walks 1, 2 and 8, and parts of these walks may be blocked at times.
For an April 2020 update to these walks and some other suggestions please see here.
