A winter view of fields near Scaldwell Northamptonshire
Northamptonshire is a lovely county with something for everyone, beautiful countryside, classic houses and villages. You can access nature almost anywhere in the county. Even in Abington Park, you may see Parrakets and even Otters! Some of the walks throughout the county are just wonderful as they follow the river or you encounter rolling hills like the image above. There is an argument for the fact that the Cotswolds starts in the Daventry area. Certainly, some of the prettiest villages can be found to the west of the county.

People flocked to the countryside and in many cases, they were ill-prepared, cared little for the environment and were ignorant of the countryside code. Car owners parked in inappropriate and dangerous places.
