Rothersthorpe Walks & Footpaths

Rothersthorpe has some great walks and access to countryside footpaths, towpath access paths and country lanes that connect to surrounding parishes and wider national trails.

Whether you exit the village from the North, South, East or West there are linking footpaths, public rights of way and country lanes for you to explore.

Be nice, say Hi, and respect all users of public rights of way!

Essentials for Navigation

Please feel free to use these links to help with everything from planning a route, identifying your location and reporting issues with public rights of way.

What 3 Words:

The simplest way to talk about location. Street addresses weren't designed for 2021. They aren't accurate enough to specify precise locations, such as building entrances, and don't exist for parks and many rural areas. This makes it hard to find places and prevents people from describing exactly where help is needed in an emergency.

What 3 Words divides the world into 3 metre squares and gave each square a unique combination of three words. It's the easiest way to find and share exact locations.
