Hereward Way

Hereward Way is a long-distance footpath in England that links the Viking Way at Oakham with the Peddars Way at Knettishall Heath, near Thetford. The path takes its name from Hereward the Wake, the 11th century leader who fought against William the Conqueror, who had his base on the Isle of Ely that is located near to the middle of the path. Each end of the path has railway access at Oakham railway station and Harling Road railway station. Stations towards the centre of the path are located at Shippea Hill and Ely. The footpath runs through Stamford, Peterborough, March, Ely and Brandon. It also goes through Thetford Forest. It links two other long-distance footpaths: the Viking Way in the west and Peddars Way in the east. In August 2006, Hereward Way between Wansford and Southorpe near Peterborough was diverted under a Peterborough City Council improvement plan. The re-routing was complete with the Peterborough Local Access Forum and means that walkers do not pass alongside the A47.
