From St. Neots to St. Ives on the Great Ouse

The Causeway in Godmanchester is only a small part of the Great Ouse River between St. Neots and St. Ives.

The river has several sources close to the villages of Syresham and Sulgrave in Northamptonshire. It flows through Brackley, Buckingham, Milton Keynes at Stony Stratford, Newport Pagnell, Olney and Kempston, which is the current head of navigation. Passing through Bedford, St Neots, Godmanchester, Huntingdon, Hemingford Grey and St Ives, it reaches Earith, where there is a short tidal section connected by the Old Bedford River and New Bedford River to the lower river at Denver.

The old course of the river passes through the cathedral city of Elyand Littleport, to reach the Denver sluice. Below this the river is tidal and passes Downham Market to enter The Wash at King’s Lynn.
