Whittlesey Heritage Walk
A new, local heritage walk that encourages people to explore the fascinating and often undiscovered history of the ancient market town.
Launched in October 2022, the Whittlesey Heritage Walk takes in the town's most historic landmarks and provides a unique insight into its history and heritage, as well as key local transport information.
The walk was originally identified as part of the Growing Fenland Whittlesey project and created thanks to funding from the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority.
The Whittlesey Heritage Walk takes you on a circular tour of the historic Fenland town. It provides options to follow a long or short trail, highlighting fabulous facts and intriguing histories of the buildings and features around Whittlesey.
It also promotes other town assets such as Whittlesea Railway Station, Kings Dyke Nature Reserve, Lattersey Nature Reserve and a wonderfully scenic riverside walk.
