May 2020: Oundle Water Meadows Circular: Wonderful Water, Wildlife and Willows.
The ‘Need to Know’
Distance: 7 miles (11.3km)
Time to walk: Today the weather was threatening so we pushed round with one short stop in 2 hours 40 mins. However given the amount of wildlife, if it’s a nice day take a good pack-up, sit & admire the views – you could spend a whole day on this one.
Difficulty: Field / water meadow walking most of the way, but appears to drain well. Sometimes early on there’s quite a lot of nettles.
Parking: We parked off road in Oundle. There is 2 hour parking near the Co-op in St Osyth’s Lane where our walk starts but you’ll need more than that.
Public toilets: In the public car park near the Co-op.
