Blatherwycke Lake

2 miles (3.8 km)

This walk visits the little Northamptonshire village of Blatherwycke where you can enjoy a stroll along the pretty lake. The peaceful lake is a great place for bird watching with Herons, Red Kites, Swans and Mandarin Ducks to look out for.
The walk then takes you east to King's Cliffe, passing along the picturesque Willow Brook, a tributary of the River Nene. Here you could extend the walk by picking up the Kings Cliffe Railway Walk which runs along a disused railway line to the east of the village.
Near the start of the walk you'll also pass the old church where there's a lovely walled garden and arboretum to see.
