River Nene

Access from the Grand Union Canal

Bridge over the canal to the cycle path heading to the River Nene.

Crossing the canal bridge brings you to a broad cycle path leading down towards the River Nene to the right . What looks like Spacecity in the next gallery is something at the rear of the Mahle Powertain building which I’d guess are fume extractors for engine test beds.

Should you choose to cross the blue bridge you will be on the cycle path which runs along the River Nene and the Nene Valley Retail Park.

You can leave the cycle path here near KFC and the Nene Valley Retail Park.

Alternately walk 100 yards towards KFC and rejoin the river cyclepath. Continue along the River to end up at South Bridge where the path ends but can be picked up again over the road where it continues on into Becket’s Park and beyond.

There is a footpath from the eastern side of the campus which passes Delapre Abbey grounds and the council Golf course to Hardingstone woods. We have walked this but not taken any photos.
