About Brampton Valley Way

The Brampton Valley Way spans over 14 miles between Northampton and Market Harborough. What was once a disused railway is now a wildlife corridor with a hard surface track suitable for most pedestrians, bicycle riders and horse-riders. Motor vehicles are not permitted on the track under any circumstances unless agreed in advance with the parks’ Rangers. Brampton Valley Way is open all day, every day with free admission.

There are no toilets along the route. It can be easily reached from the A508 (this is the Northampton to Market Harborough road). Parking is free of charge in the Brampton Valley Way car parks at Boughton crossing, Brampton Halt, Spratton, Draughton crossing and Kelmarsh station. Brixworth Country Park is nearby which provides further facilities including a cafe, parking and toilets.
