The River Great Ouse and its valley threads its way from Bedfordshire through Cambridgeshire and on to Norfolk. This ribbon of landscape is an area relatively unknown to the wider world – and even to some of its own County’s inhabitants. But it is an ancient landscape, having been a highway and trade route for millennia, from the coast to the centre of England. The Great Ouse Valley is a place of outstanding beauty mixed with pastoral charm and gentle tranquillity. There is a profusion of extraordinary treasures in close proximity – great flood plain meadows bordering a quiet, meandering river with its tangle of backwaters and islands.
Picturesque villages and market towns with a wealth of architectural and cultural heritage sit alongside. Vast tracts of man-made lakes and reed beds have become new wildernesses and internationally important wildlife sites. It is an unusual place with a complex multi-faceted character. The Great Ouse Valley cannot be seen from afar – this is a flat county. The majority of the area is inaccessible by car but once you enter the Valley on foot, bike, horse or boat you realise you are in a place apart. There is a clear, compelling sense of somewhere that is unique – a place to explore and then cherish. The Great Ouse Valley is the very best of its kind.
