BRAUNSTON AND THE HIDDEN VILLAGE | 4.6 MILES | MODERATE | NORTHANTS WALK
March 18, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm GMT
Please park at the Boat House Pub, London Road, Braunston. We have had permission from the pub to park here as long as a good proportion of the group will stop afterwards for a drink and perhaps something to eat. I am sure we can oblige :-).
ABOUT THE WALK – grade: Moderate Route
Northamptonshire offers a surprising variety of landscapes from the rolling hills in the north, to the scenic vistas and amazing woodlands in the south. If you add the Grand Union Canal with its many towpaths, quaint little villages that are secreted in history it is no wonder that they call this county the “Hidden Cotswolds”.
Braunston and the surrounding area is full of history as well as stunning scenery. We will be discovering a hidden medieval village, enjoying the delights of the Braunston hills (some steep inclines and declines), and if we are lucky we will watch the sun go down over the canal.
