Places to Walk / Ride
The Brampton Vallery Way is a great place for walking, running and cycling. The pathway runs all the way to Market Harborough in one direction and northampton the other way. This former Northampton to Market Harborough Railway is now a car
free ‘linear’ park surrounded by beautiful scenery and rich in natural
and historical heritage. The Northampton and Lamport Railway Society also operate train rides
along a short section of line at the former Pitsford and Brampton
The Brampton Valley Way can be accessed on mountain bike from Brixworth Country Park via the Merry Tom Bridleway.
Kelmarsh Tunnels (long, dark and a bit spooky but well worth a look)
Kelmarsh railway tunnels are two tunnels 480 Yards long on the old Northampton to Market Harborough railway line which closed in the early 1990's. One tunnel is open to the public and is part of the Brampton Valley Way walk and cycle path, there is a second pair of tunnels at Oxendon a couple of miles north of Kelmarsh but these are slightly shorter.
Someone has posted a video on youtube of the tunnels which is a bit low resolution, but gives a good idea of what it's like.
