Yarwell Junction Station
1 miles west of Wansford Station. Yarwell Junction station is situated approximately 25 minutes walk from the villages of Yarwell and Nassington and only 10 minutes from the Nene Way.
From Yarwell follow signs for the Nene Way which goes through the Yarwell Mill caravan site and over the lock. The route to Yarwell Station is then signposted from the Nene Way, crossing over the backwater via a bridge. There is another signpost at the turn off for the station.
From Nassington pick up the Nene Way opposite the Black Horse public house. Follow the Nene Way until the signpost for Yarwell Station directs you over the bridge over the backwater. (See above)
Yarwell Junction Station is only accessible on foot or by train – there is no vehicular access.

Peterborough (Nene Valley) Station
Next to Railworld. Signposted from the A605 Oundle Road next to the railway bridge.
Directions (On foot from Peterborough [Mainline Station]) :
Turn right out of the mainline station then go over the pedestrian crossing and up to the dual carriageway.
Turn right, walk under the footbridge and continue to the subway. Go through the subway and, shortly after, turn right through another (smaller) subway, then turn left up the ramp to meet the dual carriageway again.
Continue alongside the dual carriageway until you reach a side road called Viersen Platz. Turn into this road and continue along it, keeping the ASDA carpark and store to your left. Ignore the signpost directing you to turn right down a footpath towards the river – that’s the long route – instead carry on, with ASDA still on your left, until you come to a large blue footbridge over the river.
Cross the footbridge, follow the footpath alongside the river, and you will soon come to twin railway bridges. Pass under these two bridges and then under another very low one a little further on. Next, take the left fork up to the Railworld frontage and the short footpath from there to the NVR station.
Directions (On foot from Peterborough [Queensgate Bus Station]) :
Bus passengers should alight at Queensgate Bus Station and head for the railway station.
Once across the dual carriageway, using the footbridge, the above instructions should be followed from “Turn right, walk under the footbridge…”
NOTE: For those that have used the alternative route on the NORTH side of the river and crossed using the RAILWORLD bridge, please be aware that Railworld have now closed this bridge to public access. PLEASE USE THE BRIDGE BY ASDA.
