Gog Magog Hills
This walk explores the Gog Magog Downs, a ridge of low chalk hills extending for several miles to the southeast of Cambridge.
You start your walk at the village of Stapleford four miles to the south of Cambridge. The village became famous when it emerged that Barack Obama was a direct descendant of Thomas Blossom, who lived in Stapleford during the 16th century before emigrating to the United States.
You can pick up footpaths taking you from the village to Ash Grove, crossing the River Granta on the way. The walk then climbs to Copley Hill and Wandlebury Country Park where there is an Iron Age Hill Fort and a nature reserve. From the 74 m (243 ft) summit of Wandlebury Hill there are great views over the surrounding Cambrideshire countryside.
