We visited St Neots and what a lovely location the Ouse runs through the edge of town with plenty of activity to participate in or to watch even by sitting and watching the world go bye

this is a lovely stretch of water. With a couple of locks (pretty much at either end of the town). You'll see all sorts of wildlife (if you take time to look).
