The Haslingfield Greenway will be an active travel route to make it easier for walkers, cyclists and horse riders to travel from Haslingfield into Cambridge.
It is one of twelve Greater Cambridge Greenways. These will make it easier both to travel in a pleasant and sustainable way into and out of Cambridge and to enjoy our countryside for leisure purposes. They will also help to make local journeys such as school and nursery runs safer and easier. In some cases these are new routes, or routes with new sections, whilst others will be based on existing paths.
Our Executive Board agreed to progress designs for the Haslingfield Greenway through Grantchester following public consultation in summer 2023 with some changes to the designs. We are now updating the designs and working to submit any planning applications, path creation orders and associated permits for the whole route.
Early works for the junction of Grantchester Road and Barton Road in Newnham are being rescheduled.
The Haslingfield Greenway runs for 4 miles with a 2.1 mile spur.
The draft greenway starts at Haslingfield. One route links to Hauxton on the Melbourn Greenway by following the existing bridleway route. The other route proceeds past Canteloupe Farm where it divides. The main route continues to Grantchester. It then enters Cambridge via the Cambridge rugby club and ends at Barton Road opposite the Grange Road junction. This allows convenient access to the Sidgwick Site and other routes into Cambridge. The secondary route from Canteloupe Farm follows a northerly direction to join the Barton Greenway not far from Roman Hill. There will be grassy verges for horse riding and jogging or rambling as well as hedges and other planting and landscaping.
