The Thicket


This narrow, steep bank of ash and field maple woodland, just between St Ives and Houghton, is approximately 500 metres long and home to a variety of native woodland animals and plants. The main footpath alongside it forms part of the Ouse Valley Way which runs from Eaton Socon to Earith.

Access is from two entrances at either end of the woodland off the Thicket path. A public footpath runs north from the western access before turning west across the fields. A permissive path traverses the site and returns to the entrance at the eastern end of the wood. There are benches along the way. The Thicket is not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs and some of the paths may become slippery when wet. Please take your litter home, broken plastic and glass can injure or kill living things.

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
