The Camuplodunum was conceived in 1974 by Derek Keeble as a 25 mile, long distance route around Colchester's town boundary. To celebrate its 30th anniversary, the Camuplodunum is being regenerated by Colchester Ramblers as an "all things to all men" circuitous route of Britain's oldest recorded town. It can be used as a long distance route or broken down into shorter sections and public transport used at many places on route.
