Riders route

The links on the left give further information about the route county by county.

The riders route was first documented by Elizabeth Barrett in her 1993 book “The Icknield Way path, a guide for horse riders, cyclists and others”.  ISBN 09516011 2 1.  The route has changed since 1993 but it includes some interesting text and it is available from some libraries.

Walkers route

The Icknield Way Association produces a guide to the Icknield Way path, available with other information about the walkers route on www.icknieldway.co.uk

The BHS website Ride UK have a page describing the Icknield Way Riders’ route which is very out of date with now misleading information.  They have not responded to any corrections.
