This is a very enjoyable walk along the Nene Way, partly beside the River Nene and along good tracks and field edges. The walk wanders in and out of Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire.

There are three places in Wansford for good meals and part-way round, the Angel Inn at Yarwell has a choice of real ales and other drinks, plus lunch and evening meals.

There are fine views of the countryside on the walk. You may see and hear the 'barking deer' muntjac and also hear the cuckoo.

Pleasant walk . Please note between points 11 and 12 the footpath has become a little overgrown with lots of stinging nettles etc and can be a little tricky to manoeuvre through. Also at the time of writing the Haycock Hotel in Wansford is closed for a major refurbishment

In planning to walk this walk I notice that it is also (just) on OL234.

I walked this walk on 9th August 2012. What a beautiful walk! Within this 5 mile stroll you have picturesque villages, a nice river, lovely countryside and two sections of natural woodland.

Six of us did this walk on Sunday 13th November 2011. No problems with navigation and all thought it a lovely walk. Some very good views over the valley looking at Wansford in the distance. We look forward to doing this walk in the spring when the bluebells are in flower. We were interested to see the rare breed sheep with long horns on the way round. My dog is old and has arthritis in her paws so she appreciated the soft ground nearly all the way.

Myself, two friends and two dogs did this walk on Sunday 20 March 2011. Excellent weather and a very enjoyable walk through beautiful countryside with everything just coming into bud at the start of Spring. Would like to do this again in a couple of months time when everyhing will be blossoming. Very good opportunitiy from a vantage point circling the edge of the Sulehay disused quarry to watch some 4 x 4 "off Roading" that was taking place.
