Woodford Walks

There are some wonderful walks in and around Woodford. Here are some of them, tried and tested by our previous Footpath Warden, Joe Pitt. (The new footpath warden Jim McDermott can be contacted on 07540 662134)

If you are walking around Woodford you may find an Ordnance Survey Explorer Map 206 helpful. You can get it from bookshops, newsagents, stationers or online here. Also see our Local Footpaths page and the Woodford Walks Facebook page.

Each walk can be found here on the web site or as a handy downloadable document with a map for you to take on your walk.

#2 Cherry Tree Farm

There is also a short walk around the village to explore some of the Woodford’s railway history. You can download a walk guide here.

If you like walking, there is a useful web site called John Harris’s Walking In Northants which has details of other walks and walking clubs. You can find more local walks on his “Walks Near Daventry” page.

You can also find walks nearby on the Walking Britain web site. Here’s a link to a walk from Woodford to Hellidon and Badby. There are other nearby walks listed on the bottom of the page.
