Information and updates on the Whittlesey Heritage Walk project
The Whittlesey Heritage Walk is a project to create a local walk that provides a distinctive offer to encourage the exploration of this historic Fenland Town. The route will include historic local landmarks and provide insight into the history and heritage of the town, as well as provide key information regarding bus stop locations, access to Whittlesea Railway Station and the National Cycling Network Route 63 which runs through the town.
Originally identified under proposal four in the Growing Fenland - Whittlesey Report, this project is now being taken forward with funding provided by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority. The project is being directed by a collaborative steering group made up of key stakeholders and independent local representatives with project delivery provided by Fenland District Council's Transport Team.
The route identified for the Whittlesey Heritage Walk is an updated version of the Whittlesey Town Trail. In addition to this the proposal includes routes to Whittlesea Railway Station, Kings Dyke Nature Reserve (location of the new Heritage Centre), Lattersey Nature Reserve and a scenic riverside walk to the south of the town centre.
Plans include a range of navigation options to help people access the Whittlesey Heritage Walk:
