Geo-Trips :: East Beds to west Cambs

Fenstanton

A drive from Biggleswade, Sun, 8 Jan 2023 by David Howard

Delayed a week due to the absence of a spare tyre, the planned trip was a success and reached the A14 easily, heading home at Fenstanton as the light was going rather than cover a little more. It was nearly all old villages with traditional buildings and ponds, and had changed far less than most of the other rural areas I've visited.
