This country road is between Braybrooke and Arthingworth in the north of Northamptonshire and is part of the Midshires Way. This is a long-distance footpath and bridleway that runs for 230 miles from the Chiltern Hills from near Bledlow in Buckinghamshire, through the Midlands counties to Greater Manchester. It links several other long-distance walking routes or trackways including The Ridgeway, the Pennine Bridleway and the Trans Pennine Trail.
The route was opened in 1994 as a collaboration between numerous Local Authorities and user groups. It is intended as a multi-user trail but there are places where the recommended route for walkers differs from the route for horse riders and cyclists. The 46-mile section in Northamptonshire includes the Brampton Valley Way, which follows the route of a disused railway line, passing through two tunnels.
