Brixworth Country Park
A circular cycle or walk around the expansive Brixworth Country Park in Northamptonshire. Pitsford Reservoir is the main feature of the park. It is the 34th largest body of water in England and Wales and has a fabulous cycle and walking path running around the perimeter and a Nature Reserve at the northern end. There is also a sensory garden and a sculpture trail.
