Public Roads

Conington Road

A public road along an ancient track.

Hilton Road

Part of the road from the Clock Tower was called Pig House Lane; Pig House Farm is now called The Gables. Presumably an ancient track led from there to Hilton, and this the Commission declared a public road. It is now cut by the Fenstanton bypass with a footpath subway under it.

Turnpike Roads

These are the St.Ives-Hilton (Potton) Road and the Godmanchester-Cambridge Road, which the Commission did not alter.

St.Ives Road

Now called the Low Road. The Commission made it a Public Bridle Way (the public could go on horseback or on foot) and a Private Road Way (a carriage could travel over it) for the "use and convenience of the owners and occupiers" of the lands beside it.

Public Footpaths

Steppingstone Bridge Footway [1 & 2]

A footpath across Hall Green and the Low Road to Hemingford Grey. From the Low Road the route has been slightly altered to run alongside Lake Brook. It has a signpost at each end.

St.Ives Footway [3]

This was a short cut for pedestrians between Fenstanton and St.Ives across the fields. It was cut once by a water channel which apparently was agreed under the 1949 Act. A second channel was cut which has a footbridge over it & the path continues under the St.Ives bypass.

Footway to the Fen [4]

This is a good path between the church and Fen Lane.

Footway to Fendrayton [5]

This is a good path between the church and Fendrayton. The route has been altered a few feet, as the Fenstanton end gate is located in a hedge.

Footway to Conington [6]

This is a path signposted at the Fenstanton end of Conington Road, but is now crossed by a road and terminates at a fence. Across the road the footpath continues to Conington and is signposted.

Footway to Hilton Turnpike [7]

From West End Farm Road this is a good walk beside a gravel pit with interesting bird life, and it is signposted.

Permissive Roads (granted by landowner & tenants)

Private Roads

Fen Road [12]

Now called Fen Lane and a public footpath.
