for a more detailed description of this route.
This walk starts in the village of Staverton, which is worth an explore (particularly the pretty part close to the church!). Park considerately close to the village green (which has a Jurassic Way marker post), and then follow the Jurassic way south west towards Hellidon. There are some marvellous rolling hills off to your left which put me in mind of the illustrations in Mr. Men books! Off on the right hand side is the impressive Catesby Viaduct (built for a now disused railway line). After walking through fields for a while, the last half-mile to Hellidon is along a quiet country road.
From Hellidon the route heads east over fields and tracks, passing close to an air shaft for a tunnel for the same disused railway line you passed under earlier. The next section of the walk is a little uninspiring, but you do get to pass next to Arbury Hill, the highest point in Northamptonshire. It's not an incredibly impressive high point, and there is no public footpath that goes to the top, but there is a path up if you are a hill bagger...
Once past Arbury Hill the view opens out again to the north east, with more rolling hills. The bridleway you are on joins a minor country road which takes you into Badby, via a busy A road that should be crossed with care. The route avoids the centre of Badby, but this would be a natural rest point, and the village is worth a look around (as is an excursion to Badby Wood, which is on your right as you go into Badby). From Badby the route heads back (over the A road again) on the third leg of the triangle, north west back to Staverton, via some muddy fields and inquisitive sheep! The stream you cross then walk next to here is the infant River Nene.
Overall this is an excellent (although sometimes muddy) walk in a great part of the countryside.
