Summary: The Pathfinder Long Distance Walk in the county of Cambridgeshire was devised to perpetuate the name of the Royal Air Force Pathfinder Force with the route purposely linking the historic RAF Pathfinder stations at Wyton, Graveley, Oakington and Warboys. The path uses rights of way as it makes its way on a circular course across gentle countryside, through quaint towns and villages and while passing a number of wartime memorials and historic sites. The walk was originally designed as a 20 hour challenge and now also serves as an illuminating walk with respect to the RAF and its associations to Cambridgeshire. The walk begins and ends at RAF Wyton and through its course the walk goes via Kings Ripton, Broughton, Warboys, Somersham, Colne, Bluntisham, River Great Ouse, Swavesey, Cow Fen, Longstanton, Oakington, Dry Drayton, Childerley, Knapwell, Elsworth, Papworth Everard, Graveley, Godmanchester, Hemingford Abbots and Houghton.
