Fenland Wanderings

Mist-shrouded fens

The commute to work sometimes involves a very long walk!

A week ago, we were in Upware, and- as my bike was broken- we had to get to the bus-stop at Swaffham Prior by foot. This involved an hour and a halfs walk!

Saying that the roads are long and straight is an understatement. They make rulers look bendy; coming to any kind of corner is a cause for jubilation.

We're working out alternative ways of getting into Cambridge, however; whilst Upware is on the wrong side of the river, there is a bridge a mile or so upstream- so we can cycle north, across the river, and then along some straight roads to Stretham, where we can catch an assortment of buses.
