Walk 20: Braybrooke & Arthingworth Circular

I’m really grateful to Julia Cory for sending in her ‘Walk from my Doorstep’

Julia’s really lucky to live in a beautiful area of Northamptonshire, with easy access to rolling countryside & some lovely villages

Her walk is a circular one from lovely Braybrooke via Arthingworth. It’s roughly 6 miles long & takes a couple of hours

Here’s Julia’s instructions & her great photo’s. Enjoy &…

Let’s Walk

1. The best place to start this walk is from ‘The Swan’ on Griffin Rd, Braybrooke, also handy for refreshments at the end of the walk. There is plentiful on road parking near the pub.

2. Start the walk by walking down Griffin Rd towards the village hall, follow the road until you get to a left hand turn onto Newland St, take this turn and keep on walking

3. This path is part of the Jurassic Way and Midshires Way. A little way along the track take the left hand path, way marked, which takes you over a small bridge and onto paths over arable fields

4. At the top of bear left and follow the well marked path

5. Eventually you will reach a road, cross straight over.
The path is signposted

6. Follow the path, bearing left towards the far corner of the field.

At the end of the field bear left across a second field; keep the small spinney on your right

7. At the corner of this field follow the hedge line keeping this on your left

8. About half way down keep an eye out for a gap in the hedge

Walk through the gap and turn right, keeping the hedge line on your right. Follow the path to the end of the field.

The gap in the hedge as mentioned above

9. Go through a small gap in the hedge at the end of the field and over a stile (or through the gate)

10. The route now is on minor roads

Follow the now made up path to the road & turn left onto Oxendon Road. Follow the road &, at the junction, take the left turn, walking along Braybrooke Road. The Bulls Head is on the left, if you fancy a pit stop

11. The road splits, just outside Arthingworth, once you’ve been over a cattle grid. Take the left hand fork, helpfully called Braybrooke Road

Climb up the hill, there are great views back over Arthingworth & the undulating countryside of this part of Northamptonshire. Big skies!

12. At the top of the hill, turn left & almost immediately right, taking the road back down towards Braybrooke

You are on Griffin Road, & will soon see the pub, where further refreshment opportunities await!

Thanks Julia &…

Go Walk!
