Day 1 along the Fen Rivers Way is a short day of less than 7 miles and starts at the city centre of Cambridge and follows a lovely section of the River Cam to the nearby village of Waterbeach.The route is well served by an excellent rail link at the end of each day. I actually parked at the car park at Waterbeach and got the train into cambridge city centre and walked back to the car along the route.


A spectacular roman catholic church near the start of the walk.
