The Ouse Valley Way is a 150-mile footpath that follows the River Great Ouse and provides great opportunities for walks. The length of the Ouse Valley Way Walk gives lots of flexibility in terms of where you start and end your walk. We began a walk at Buckden in Cambridgeshire, which is home to St Mary’s Church (above) and Buckden Towers (below) – formerly known as Buckden Palace – which is a 12th-century fortified manor house.
Buckden Palace has been home to the Bishops of Lincoln, and is listed in the Domesday Survey of 1086 as a manor belonging to the Bishop of Lincoln. During World War 2, Buckden Towers was home to evacuees from the London Blitz.
Below is a view of St. Peter’s Church in Offord D’Arcy from the Ouse Valley Way.
The walk is parallel to the East Coast Main Line, so you can take photos of high-speed trains passing various boats on the River Great Ouse.
