Walk the Lyveden Way

Lyveden Way is a true taste of Northamptonshire, including sheltered woodland, open fields, attractive wildlife and pretty villages.

Walking the Lyveden Way

The Lyveden Way begins at the Fermyn Woods Country Park, home to many varieties of butterfly, fallow deer and even a few rare and striking red kites.  As the route leaves the Country Park, it turns east along the perimeter of Fermyn Woods and emerges into open countryside.

It then follows the perimeter of Lady Wood Head and turns towards Lyveden.  Why not drop in to the Cottage Tearoom at Lyveden for a break and some refreshment? As you rejoin the walk, it approaches the village of Wadenhoe through Lilford Wood.

Passing through the village, it turns into pasture fields before re-entering woodland and is completed by rejoining the outward route after Lady Wood Head.

What will I need?

Please take clear directions, an ordnance survey map, sturdy footwear, water and warm clothing with you on the Lyveden Way. Take care when crossing or walking on roads.
