Meldreth and Wimpole Hall


  • Start: Meldreth station (station code MEL, postcode SG8 6JP)
  • Finish: Meldreth station (station code MEL, postcode SG8 6JP)
  • Distance: 17.61km
  • Total ascent: 70m
  • Naismith time: 3h 38m
  • London terminus: Kings Cross
  • Ticketing: Day return to Meldreth
  • Intermediate transport: Sparse bus service to Cambridge at Orwell (11.62km)
  • Facilities: Café at Wimpole Hall (8.36km); pub and convenience shop at Orwell (11.62km), and at Meldreth (16.86km)


The length of this walk is balanced by the lack of ascent. The route makes its way across the Cambridgeshire countryside, then locks onto the arrow-straight southern avenue to Wimpole Hall (National Trust — all the usual NT facilities and a home farm besides). The return is similar to the start, ending up going through the middle of Meldreth with its refreshment options before reaching the station.
