Car Free Day poster








If you are thinking of getting around on foot on Tuesday, we have put together a  list of local walks, some of which you might know and others that may be new to you:

  • Lake and Country Park – access through Station Lane Avenue 2 or off Langel common behind the Leisure Centre and through the hay meadow.
  • Visit the Tiny Forest at Eton Close on Cogges – it’s still very little but growing well and a great place to spot some butterflies and creepy crawlies
  • Cogges or Madley into the town centre across Langel Common
  • West End to Marriotts across the field and Windrush and up Puck Lane
  • Alongside the Windrush from the back of the Mill past the Bathing Place and up to Dry Lane in Crawley
  • Deer Park Wood
  • Burwell to The Leys across the traffic lights on Ducklington Lane and along the lane beside Lidl.
  • This one sounds a bit odd, but consider a walk through our beautiful Victorian Cemetery. Here is a  guide to help you discover some of the most interesting historical and  unusual features there and another to help identify some of the wildlife.

  • Why not walk to a play area that’s not your nearest one and see what is there. We have 10 parks that you can visit:
  1. Eton Close, Cogges
  2. Oxlease, Cogges
  3. The Leys, Station Lane
  4. King George V field Newland
  5. Burwell Recreation Ground, Burwell Farm
  6. Moorland Avenue, off Welch Way
