As of August 2022, there is a housing development in Wootton, south of Brackmills business estate, between 52.212005, -0.876542 and 52.206141, -0.869590. The footpath is diverted without clear signage, forcing a small diversion along Landimore Road between the roundabout at Newport Pagnell Road and the corner at about 52.210875, -0.869976 where a small gate allows access to a woodland path that runs to Hardingstone village. Don’t let it put you off though :-)...

From there you follow the route of an old railway line, popular with local cyclists and dog walkers and for an early section, lots of local rabbits! Finding the path wasn't easy and I wonder if carrying on along the footpath by the railway and joining Brampton Lane earlier might have been an easier option. Beyond Chapel Brampton was my favourite section of the walk. It was this section from Teeton to Far Heath that stopped it from being a five star walk. If the road walk near Teeton could be eliminated I'd give it full marks for safety....

I started this direct, easy to follow route from Hartwell on a hot day. I was thankful the route passes the Post Office (shop), as I'd run out of water on my other walks that day. In summary, having fixed the error in the original route, this has the makings of a really nice walk....

I was generally pleased with it, until getting to the university campus where, rather than following the footpath, you follow the road, supposedly to join the Nene footpath. The bridge you are lead to, however, has no access to the path and the prospect of clambering down the bank is somewhat hampered by the presence of traffic barriers at the road side. This version of the route makes no sense when a version via the campus footpath actually links up with the riverside walk....

Walk this route

Quite a bit alongside the canal, a few hundred yards on small roads through Blisworth, and then over the fields including half a mile alongside woods then quite a distance over flat meadows before the last half mile on road in to Towcester. The walk was in January so the going was quite muddy underfoot but otherwise it was easy....

I think there is a problem with this route around OS Grid Ref SP 85972 81826 where the route leaves Station Road and heads through the quarry (Hanson Aggregates). The quarry appears to be private and gated and unsafe to attempt to pass through. I have attached a screenshot centred on the Slow Way, a screenshot of the associated OS Map and a photo of the access road....

Would have attached photos but the size limit is too small even for photos taken on my fairly basic phone - I suggest a 10MB limit rather than 5MB....

Pleasant route with some nice scenery, particularly Harlestone woods, but much of the route is quite muddy when the weather has been wet....
