Fairly flat route taking you through Daventry Country Park, along the canal and through the village of Long Buckby which has many facilities including shops, public toilet, pharmacy, pub and train station. The New Inn on the canal is very pleasant in the summer. Issues to note include some narrow footbridges, potentially muddy sections, long grass and the need to cross the busy A5 road and walk along its verge for 50 feet or so. The back road into West Haddon is narrow but ok to walk along.
