Walking Close to Daventry

Walking Close to Daventry

by: Clive Brown
One of a range of 'no frills' local walking guide booklets which admirably achieve their objective of getting you out in the countryside amongst beautiful scenery on carefully chosen routes full of interest. The directions are clear and precise and the pencil drawn sketch maps are particularly attractive as well as practical.

This guide describes eleven varied and interesting circular walks in the countryside around Daventry in Northamptonshire. The geography of the countryside around Daventry is influenced by national transport systems. The Grand Union Canal, the West Coast railway line and the M1 motorway all run through the Watford Gap. The source of the River Nene is a spring near Arbury Hill, at 738 feet the highest point in Northamptonshire. The River Leam rises near Hellidon.

The walk locations are:
Badby and Arbury Hill - 8 miles
