Brampton Valley Way :: Shared Description

The Brampton Valley Way is a 14-mile walking and cycling path, following the route of a dismantled railway line linking Northampton with Market Harborough.

The railway had opened in 1859 and had six intermediate stations. It passed through two tunnels, at Kelmarsh and at Oxendon. Regular services over the line were withdrawn in 1960, although the line continued to be used intermittently until 1981 when the final train ran.

Brampton Valley Way forms part of Sustrans' National Cycle Network route 6.
