We brought a visit to nature reserve Paxton Pits, a beautiful ground of wildlife habitats covering 78 hectares of lakes, riverside, meadow, highland grass and woodland. It is situated in the Great Ouse valley between St Neots and Huntingdon, and run by the Friends of Paxton Pits and Huntingdonshire District Council.
Upon arrival you can easily park your cat at the parking space in front of the information centre. From here you can decide which path you want to follow as there are different walks to explore. As we were with our five year old daughter we decided to choose the most short walk, that would take an hour or so.
But still the most short walk offers many different sights of beautiful nature as you’ll cross reedbeds, the beautiful stretched lakes where you could find all sorts of birds and long paths through the forest with trees rising up in the sky. If you look closely through the ground and up along the trunks you’ll even notice some tiny fairy tale houses.
Paxton Pits is an ideal place to go out with the family, if you want to discover the other paths make sure you bring some lunch with you as there are perfect spots to have some small picnic, there are also some kiosk where you can buy little snacks and drinks.
