Walk 1 Feniton Court (3.9 miles)


An old lane

A pleasant and gentle walk to the village of Feniton Court and the outskirts of Fenny Bridges - no pub, but a PO and a delightful church.

From here you follow an old lane dramatically cutting through the local stone , then turn right into a public footpath leading to a wood where deer have been seen.

The walk also passes a stone commemorating the Prayer Book Rebellion 1549. There was heavy fighting near the bridge between the 'rebels' and Russel's army.
