Have walked along the greenway to get from Rushden to Crown Park and the new Rushden Lakes retail park. It's handy as you are away from traffic. Just a shame kids hang out under the bridge drinking and smashing bottles, but I think that's all...More

Well, there are lots of paths to walk along! This one runs from Rushden Station to Higham. Avoid before/after school as full of kids messing about. You walk along the old rail line.

Excellent use of a disused railway line - planned improvements include a ramp to Washbrook Road and a continuation to Wellingborough Station. Will also connect with Rushden Lakes.

A fairly newly laid path with a gentle slope down towards Rushden or up towards Higham Ferrers. Very busy at school start and finish time but quiet for the rest of the day. Perfect for a short dog walk or a run.

Going between Higham and Rushden is a lot easier, safer and quieter when using this footpath. The only time it gets busy is when the school kicks out.
