This 900m path follows the River Ivel from Franklins Recreation Ground to Hill Lane. There are lovely views of the river as the path takes you through Back Meadows, part of Biggleswade Common. Look out for kingfishers and terns fishing in the river.

This is part of the Kingfisher Way long distance walk. A circular walk can be made by following the road back through town.

Path information

The path is tarmac along most of the walk. There are 3 kissing gates along the route. These are accessible for pushchairs, wheelchairs and mobility scooters. There are several benches along the path. Cattle graze on Back Meadows in the summer months.
