Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Northamptonshire, Peterborough, Rutland, Suffolk

177 km / 110 miles
The Way links the Viking Way (at Oakham) with the Peddars Way near to Knettishall Heath. It passes through Stamford, Peterborough and Ely to reach the Brecklands heaths and forests at Brandon and Thetford. There are areas of flat open fenland.

The Torpel Way (11 miles from Peterborough to Stamford and included on OS mapping) provides an alternative option between those two locations - the route is to the north of the Hereward Way.
