Northamptonshire Boundary Walk


325 km / 202 miles
A route of over 200 miles that traverses close to the county of Northamptonshire boundary line, within and occasionally along the boundary. The route is sub-divided into 14 stages which are detailed on the website below. Starting at Kings Sutton and visiting Middleton Cheney, Chipping Warden, Badby, Braunston, Welsby, Crick, Market Harborough, Great Oakley, Wansford, Thrapston, Higham Ferrers, it includes many other villages in-between giving a wealth of refreshment and transport opportunities on all sections of the walk.

It is assumed that anyone tackling this walk will be an experienced map reader, so the descriptions merely offer a little guidance where we think that the route may not be obvious. The maps are modified to assist, by for example deleting removed hedgerows. This walk was devised by Chris Eilbeck, The Ramblers' footpath secretary for the Northampton Group at the time. Maps are available to Group members by a log in and use OS mapping. Trackfiles are downloadable for LDWA members below.
