Rights of Way
Northamptonshire County Council
Interactive Mapping


Northamptonshire has over 3000km of Rights of Way that you can walk at any time you wish, all you need is some stout footware and appropriate clothing. A map might be useful, but not essential as paths are generally well waymarker.
In addition there are paths through forests and beside water, but if you want to share your enjoyment of the countryside with others then Northamptonshire also has a number of very active walking groups.
