Apples and Ale cycle Route

This cycle ride starts from the busy market town of Wisbech, the capital of the surrounding Fens. From here the route heads west into rich farmland, past waterways, ancient sea banks and tiny Fenland villages, which are surrounded by hundreds of acres of orchards. In springtime these are enriched with the colour and scent of blossom, and in autumn, by delicious fruit. Along this route you can wander amongst the 100 year old apple trees in an old orchard, discover the treasures of ancient churches and taste the real ales at a Georgian brewery.

National Cycle Network - Route 1

A long distance cycle route connecting Dover and the Shetland Islands - via the east coast of England and Scotland - that also forms the majority of the British section of the North Sea Cycle Route. This route passes through Wisbech, but or the whole, impressive route, which is route 12 of the Eurovelo network, see http://www.northsea-cycle.com/

For a more local view of NCN route 1, see the Sustrans on-line interactive mapping at http://www.sustrans.org.uk/ncn/map/route/route-1?lat=52.78116973562679&lng=0.2554316914062138&zoom=10&route-type=all-routes&filters=

Route 1 links with the eastern end of NCN route 63 (which runs from Stoke on Trent via Peterborough and March) at Church Terrace, immediately north of the parish church, where there is a Millennium Milepost indicating the distances to I think Boston and Hull, King’s Lynn, March and Peterborough.
