Great guides to get out and about in South Northants
Two more ‘must have’ hot-off-the-press guides to help visitors and locals get the most out of what South Northamptonshire has to offer are now available. These form part of an on-going series of guides produced by South Northamptonshire Council (SNC) to promote all the attractions and opportunities to spend leisure time in the district.
For the cyclist ‘Cycling in South Northamptonshire’ offers the chance to try some off-road routes as well as hill climbs, quiet lanes and forest tracks, and most of the recommended routes start from a pub or café featured in our excellent Food and Drink guide.
Youngsters will love discovering more about wildlife in the district with ‘Walking and Wildlife with Children’. Nature reserves and pocket parks are there to be explored from Old Stratford to Boddington. This is a great way to learn about wildlife and enjoy the countryside with tips of how to stay safe and leave the countryside as you found it.
Councillor Dermot Bambridge, portfolio holder for economic development and regeneration, said: “These eye-catching and cleverly structured guides promote the district to all age groups and promote a variety of resting places and refreshment stops which really help boost the local economy.
“As the summer approaches I would advise everyone to get our walking and cycling guides to enjoy all that the district has to offer from beautiful villages, hundreds of miles of superb footpaths, bridleways, ancient tracks, canals and family attractions – there is something for everyone. The other great advantage these guides offer is the healthy exercise that goes with the walking and cycling.”
The SNC walking guides can be downloaded at www.southnorthants.gov.uk/walking and the cycling guides can be downloaded at www.southnorthants.gov.uk/3954 or picked up from our offices in Towcester, attractions throughout the district and Towcester Museum.
