South Northants Heritage Trail-Walkers Map. Global Mapping
A brand new trail that stretches for 158 miles through the beautiful, historic landscape of South Northamptonshire. The trail is split into 3 circuits each with different characteristics but all taking in places to eat drink and sleep with heritage features and tourist sites to visit.
The South Northants Heritage Trail has been designed to allow the walker to get the most from this beautiful and interesting part of England. South Northamptonshire contains some of the country’s most quintessentially English landscapes interspersed with attractive, largely unspoilt villages characterised by picturesque stone cottages. This rural and sparsely populated landscape has remained largely unchanged for centuries with a rich history. 1,800 listed buildings, many built from the distinctive local limestone and ironstone; over 50 conservation villages; dozens of ancient churches; the Grand Union and Oxford canals; and miles of dismantled railways-many of which are part of the trail.
The Heritage Trail winds around South Northamptonshire in three linked circuits radiating out of Brackley and Towcester for a total of 158 miles taking in many of the historic sights and sites that abound across the region. The walker has the option to do the trail in smaller circular routes, shown on this map as a pecked line. Detailed instructions for these routes are available from www.globalmapping.uk.com/blog Even if you don't want to walk, the map offers a detailed view of the region, based on Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 mapping, ideal for local residents as well as visitors to the area who want to get around. Many historic features have been highlighted in brown including the many disused railways that used to criss cross the area.
The proposed route of HS2 is also marked on the map, sadly highlighting the scar that will traverse this beautiful part of England.
