More walking and cycling maps aimed at encouraging Fenland residents and visitors to explore the area on foot or by bike have been launched by Fenland District Council.

There are now walking and cycling maps available for all four Fenland market towns, after the newest ones for March and Chatteris were launched.

The Wisbech map was launched in February this year, and Whittlesey’s in 2021.

All the maps, which have been created as part of the council’s cycling, walking and mobility aid improvement strategy, highlight the plentiful opportunities for travelling more actively across the district.

A council spokesperson said: “With its relatively flat landscape, the Fens is one of the best places in the country to walk or cycle, providing lots of easy terrain for all ages and abilities to enjoy.

“Our series of walking and cycling maps will help people to make the most of these routes, whether travelling for work or school or exploring the area for leisure.”

As well as identifying popular walking and cycling routes, the maps also combine routes to key locations in the towns and link them to longer, more challenging cycling routes connected to the National Cycle Network routes which run across Fenland.

The newest March and Chatteris maps were funded by Cambridgeshire County Council’s integrated transport block funding and created with significant input from local stakeholders and community groups including Chatteris Cycling Club, Chatteris u3a and March Vintage Cycle Club.

All four maps are available to download from the Council’s website or picked up from community outlets across Fenland. Visit for more information.
