A pleasant easy walk. Ornithologists will enjoy this one as will families with kids.
First mentioned in the Domesday Book, Wymington Spinney is a lovely stretch of woodland right on the edge of Rushden(Boundary Avenue) and Knuston.
The bridleway is part of what was the main road until the C13th when it was superseded by the road through Higham Ferrers which became a market town at that time. The old road includes a footpath which continues from the bridleway to the northwest. A network of paths criss cross through the Spinney which can be wet and muddy after rain.(WELLIES!!!) A delightful sheltered spot , safe and enjoyable for children, adults and dogs(watch out for deposits!!!) Walk in a circle(in a spin!) or enter from Irchester Road end(street parking readily available) for a linear meandering stroll through the woods. Opens out onto open fields. Footpaths continue on acroos the field to Wymington where there is a warm welcome at the New Inn.
ADULTS: SAFER TO PARK OFF MAIN IRCHESTER ROAD ALONG BOUNDARY AVENUE. Spinney can be accessed from Irchester Rd(signposted bridleway) or ¼ mile up turn 2 nd left into Blackfriars( a crescent) continue past the shops or park up there if space…entry to spinney is straight ahead between two parallel rows of houses.
KIDS – There s a play area on your left about half way down with benches for grown ups to rest and check the co ordinates! Sit and eat your picnic there!!
Look out for numerous species of birds, treecreepers, woodpeckers, great and blue tits etc . Also squirrels and muntjac deer(caution if you have a dog with you and deer have young !)
