Leaving Cotterstock, the route takes you over the River Nene and through the historic village of Warmington. Warmington has a fantastic water mill which is now a retail showroom which is well worth a visit. You can also take a slight detour from Warmington across the flood plains to Fotheringhay, a historic medieval village where Mary, Queen of Scots was executed in 1587.
From here you travel to Haddon, crossing the A1 before travelling into the residential area of Peterborough called Orton Waterville and past the Ortongate Shopping Centre.
The route then travels through the residential area of Woodston and into the centre of Peterborough. Here the route links with Route 12 and also the Peterborough Green Wheel route - a network of routes in and around the city created as part of a Millennium project.
