The third day along the Fen Rivers Way is only a short one, following the Great Ouse River for about 7 miles to the village of Littleport. I chose to extend the walk slightly to take in the Motte and Bailey Castle and the spectacular Ely Cathedral too.

One option for today is to book two nights stay at Ely and use public transport back at the end of the day and return in the morning.


Heading through Jubilee Gardens towards the castle.


Some of the earthworks from the Norman Motte and Bailey Castle.


Located just next to the cathedral.

A city with an extremely rich history, to find out take a look at the video!


Ely Cathedral.

The bishops palace.

Back on the trail now and heading along the Great Ouse.


Joining the riverbank path with the road alongside. This stretch was a little noisy!


The road bridge at Queen Adelaide.

Finally away from the road and its absolutely lovely!

The merging of the River Lark.

Not far left to go now to Littleport Train Station. I Parked here and got the train to Ely which cost only a few pounds but the other way, parking at Ely and getting the train back would have cost nearly 3 times as much!
