From the pretty village of Westbury, with its charming cottages and houses, some of them thatched, it is but a short distance to Westbury Mill, a fine old Victorian building. The route then takes to meadows before joining a disused railway embankment track. Remains of the old dismanled railway are much in evidence on this part of the walk, heading towards Turweston, but then turning away from it alongside its airstrips. There are some grand and attractive houses along the route where horses are bred and reared and the River Ouse and its tributaries are crossed several times. Quiet woodland paths lead out onto the minor country road that leads back to Westbury, with fields and open countryside either side. Mostly on flat, level terrain in this rural Northamptonshire area, this walk will have obvious appeal to those looking to avoid strenuous climbs, but having a good many other winning features.

12/06/2014 - Richard Moisey

Good walk away from roads and road noise completed in sunshine 16 June 2014. Time has passed since the guide was written: Point 2: The craft gallery has gone and the mill is now flats. Point3: The meadow has been sub-divided so there are two extra gates. Point 5: The "fields on the left" is now a tree plantation; the waymark post is no more, so head for the large visible gap in hedge. Point 11: note that this section is very muddy even many days after last rain. Point 13: IMPORTANT! The inn is now a private house!
