The Wandlebury Country Park & Nature Reserve Cambridge UK
 
The Medieval Taplow Granary at Wandlebury Country Park & Nature Reserve

 

A beautiful 110 acres of woodland, parkland and chalk meadows with 12 km of public paths to walk plus a nature trail (please keep to paths at all times cos of wildlife management - minimising disturbance especially to hares and wildfowl who have to rest on the ground during daylight hours). There is also a Roman road you can walk along. Set in the Gog Magog Hills close to Cambridge. Public Toilets are located in the old stable block (surmounted by a clock cupola).

The Path to the Education Centre, Wandlebury Country Park, Cambridgeshire
The Education Centre, where the Cambridge Healing Group meets, is found by walking straight forward from the entrance car park, passing the "pay here" booth on the left and notice board on the right. When the track splits, keep right, to enter a gateway and pass along an avenue of trees, passing the duck pond on the left. Then turn left and pass over the bridge spanning the ancient defensive ditch. The Education Centre is the next path on the right (see photo). The Centre is a renovated 18th century stable block - once home to Godolphin, one of the 4 original Arabian horses imported into the UK from which modern Arabians were bred.

Babraham Park & Ride Location Map - Wandelbury is bottom R, hover over this area to generate small square button for enlarging/reducing the map.

This Park and Ride site has extensive planting around the perimeter, in a woodland belt. The native trees include ash, field maple, hawthorn and hazel. There is a wildflower meadow area, with an interpretation board and picnic benches. This dry chalk grassland with its rich and varied flora is particularly valuable as it is now such a scarce resource in the county.

Park & Ride Access by car: from the A1307, coming into Cambridge, take a right turn at the roundabout just after the Gog Magog golf course, onto Cherry Hinton Road. The second turn on your left, about a quarter of a mile after the roundabout, is the turning into the Babraham Park & Ride.

All buses are low floor, easy access buses which are suitable for wheelchair and pushchair use. (Please check for current availability with Traveline on 0870 608 2 608). Buses run every 10 minutes into the City Centre. The approximate journey time from Babraham Road to the City Centre is 18 minutes, although this can vary during peak periods.
