Walking from The Admiral Nelson PH, Little Braunston, this route takes a short length of the Grand Union Canal, leaving it to follow the course of the 2042 yds long Braunston Tunnel, opened in 1796. From these Northamptonshire heights the views over very pleasant landscape are good. The picturesque village of Welton is visited with its blend of interesting old and newer dwellings, and where there is a heart rendering plaque to a little child, seen from the street below the churchyard. The route continues further north to Ashby-St-Ledgers, a small, picturesque village, then returns to Braunston on the Jurassic Way.A walk that offers historical interest amidst lovely countryside.
