The Icknield Way Path runs 110 miles from Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire, to Knettishall Heath in Suffolk.
Rather confusingly, the path is also a section of the longer Icknield Way that is made up of four paths, stretching from the north Norfolk coast to Wiltshire, more on all that another time.
I had intended to walk the entire path over five or six days or so but it’s become evident that that is just not going to happen any time soon. So I’ve decided to walk it in stages, which is quite handy as much of the path is within easy reach of train stations.
So, ideally I’d start at the start and end at the end but this isn’t convenient just now so I’m starting in the middle and heading east.
- First stage: Baldock to Royston
- Second stage: Royston to Great Chesterford
- Third stage: Great Chesterford to Dullingham
- and onwards and upwards to Knettishall Heath
Here’s a map that I nicked from the Icknield Way Association website, I hope they don’t mind:
