Bottisham Greenway

 An off-road route for cyclists, pedestrians and equestrians - is proposed to connect Bottisham to Cambridge.

There is an existing off-road walking and cycling path from Cambridge to Bottisham, but improvements are needed to make it a high-quality, off-road route.

The new Greenway will connect up residents from Bottisham with Cambridge, along with the villages of Stow cum Quy and Fen Ditton. It will also allow an off-road route for visiting key destinations and employment opportunities such as Bottisham Village College, Marshalls and Cambridge North.

Proposed route

Please note that the route and features of a Bottisham Greenway are not finalised and we are currently refining the proposals to include community feedback.

  • The route starts in central Cambridge alongside the river and shares an alignment with the Horningsea and Swaffhams Greenways as far as Fen Ditton.
  • Utilising the current Sustrans route 51 between Fen Ditton and at the entrance of Newmarket Road Park & Ride, the route then travels through Stow cum Quy.
  • The Bottisham and Swafhams Greenways split at Stow cum Quy following the B1102 and A1303 respectively.
  • The route then follows the A1303 and goes through the villages of Stow cum Quy and ends at Bottisham Village College.

Key features

  • Improve route through Newmarket Road Park & Ride site and near the Ditton Lane/ Fison Road junction
  • Construct new 1.2 km path on A1303 from the junction of Bell Road to High Street in Bottisham.
  • Minor improvements to existing route, including widening wherever possible and adding solar studs.

Get Involved

We spoke to the local community about potential options and to gather feedback earlier this year. We are now analysing this feedback and working up options. We will be consulting on proposals for a Bottisham Greenway in 2019.
