Walking Close to Wansford and the Nene Valley Railway

Walking Close to Wansford and the Nene Valley Railway

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 focuses on the Nene Valley Railway near Wansford and Yarwell Junction Railway Station with ten varied and interesting circular walks, mainly about 6 miles in length. Footpaths radiate from Wansford in all directions, taking in a wide range of scenery. Thick forest, water meadows, fertile grassland, stoney agricultural uplands, abandoned quarries and picturesque stone villages roofed in local Collyweston tiles. The Great North Road, the River Nene and the A47 Birmingham to Great Yarmouth road all meet at Wansford. It has consequently been a major focal point for transport for centuries.

The walk locations are:
Yarwell and Nassington - 7 miles
Woodnewton and Apethorpe - 6.25 miles
Wansford and the Nene Way - 12 miles
Wansford and Bedford Purlieus - 7.5 miles
Wadenhoe and Bearshank Wood - 5.75 miles
Wansford and Old Sulehay Forest - 5.5 miles
Nassington and New Sulehay - 5.5 miles
Woodnewton and Southwick - 4.75 miles
Elton Park - 4.5 miles
Nassington and Yarwell Mill - 3.5 miles
