About Brixworth Country Park, Northampton

Close to the historic village of Brixworth, Northamptonshire's youngest Country Park is a patchwork of meadows and newly planted woodland with stunning views over Pitsford Water.

There is a purpose made cycle track that follows the shore of Pitsford Water making a seven mile circular route that is frequented by both cyclists and walkers alike.

Pitsford Water is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). The water is home to wading birds such as Greenshank, is the site of the county's largest winter gull roost and is regularly visited by Ospreys on their spring migrations.

The park is a haven for wildlife - listen out for the song of the Skylark in the skies overhead or look out for signs of the Badgers that forage in the meadows at night.

Brixworth is a delight for human visitors too, with many opportunities to explore and enjoy our countryside. Fully accessible features and facilities include a Visitor Centre with hands on activities, displays, souvenir and crafts shop and both manual and electric wheelchairs available for hire.

As well as the Willow Tree restaurant and the Visitor Centre there is a cycle shop where you can buy or hire a full range of bikes including some which have kids' trailers attached.

In the park adjacent to the visitor centre there is a small pond and an area of gardens with sensory experiences such as scented plants and herbs, tactile displays and creepy crawlies hiding in the water and the undergrowth for children to explore and discover ! There are also sculptures, bird hides various trails to follow and much much more. All in all a great day out for the whole family.

Why not also check out Pitsford Cycles, where you can buy or hire bicycles for riding around the park. If you would like to know more about the park itself, visit this page from Northamptonshire County Coucil or have a look at the Anglian Water site.

"A new walk has been opened in Northamptonshire called the ‘TFC Northamptonshire Round'.
