The idea of this expedition is to see how far north I can get using my feet (in stages). The map below shows my route so far from Ely.

Stage 2: Little Downham to March
Stage 3: March to Whittlesey

Stage 7: Oakham to Melton Mowbray
Stage 8: Melton Mowbray to Grantham
Stage 9: Grantham to Nottingham (via the Grantham Canal and a wild camp!)
Stage 10: Upwards and onwards…
