A circular walk taking in the tiny Northamptonshire village of Cosgrove and a section of the River Tove. The walk follows a peaceful stretch of the Grand Union Canal towpath south to the village and then returns via pastures alongside the meandering River Tove. The walk is almost entirely flat, but the narrow towpath and the paths through pastures are likely to be muddy after wet weather. There is also a section (about one third of a mile) of road walking along a road without pavements. There are several gates including some kissing gates and two stiles, one of which is quite high with enclosed wire fencing around so dogs may need a lift over. You may be sharing some of the pastures with cows and sheep so take care with dogs. Approximate time 1 hour.
