Great British Driving Roads – the B645 in Cambridgeshire
Thank you to Stuart of MotoringSpy.co.uk for allowing us to summarise his great series on Great British Driving Roads. Here we look at the B645 in Cambridgeshire. Please let our readers have your views once you have driven this road. Is it a 10 out of 10? Driving nirvana or not?
The 18 mile route from Higham Ferrers to Saint Neots is an excellent B road known as “Spa” among keen drivers. Starting in Higham Ferrers and heading east you’ll pass through a series of small villages and historic market towns.
First up is Chelveston, then Hargrave, Tilbrook, Kimbolton, Great Staughton, Hail Weston and finally St Neots.
The B645 is an excellent route (only downgraded from an A road in the mid-nineties) with lots of open sweeping curves and good visibility which is typical of fenland roads.
It’s similar to the B660, but much busier especially with bikers. Due to this popularity it’s more heavily policed, so watch out for speed traps.
