A figure-of-eight walk, mainly on tracks and green lanes passing many places of historic interest, crossing low hills, woods and arable land via Standon and Manuden to meet the cross-over point at Newport. It continues through Saffron Walden and over the low Bartlow Hills to Horseheath and the Fleam Dyke, to enter Cambridge, the return route passing through Melbourn and Chrishall to Newport, continuing via Debden, Thaxted, Takeley and Hatfield Forest. The waymarked Five Parishes Millennium Boundary Walk (15 miles) is a circular route using part of the Harcamlow Way at Tilty. The waymarked Wimpole Way (11 miles and on OS mapping) Way goes across farmland and through the villages of Caldecote and Kingston to the eighteenth-century Wimpole Hall and Park and is part of the Harcamlow Way.
