The walk takes you beside the River Great Ouse from the town, along an ancient track to three flooded claypits; a rural retreat within a mile of the city centre. Two of the Pits are a Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve where great crested grebe and tufted duck are usually seen and bittern and otter have been reported. The view of Ely Cathedral from Roswell Pits is amongst the best in Ely. (If arriving by bus start at the Cathedral, and turn left when you reach the river.)
