From Barnwell you might choose to walk to the village of Wadenhoe passing Wigsthorpe, Achurch and Lilford (Just over 7km) or heading in the other direction you could head to village of Fotheringhay by skirting the town of Oundle and passing by Ashton and Warmington. The local circular walk takes about one and a half hours.
