This district is home to six other towns, Rushden being the largest town with a population of 29,272. However much of the district is home to Rockingham Forest. It is also home to many of Northampton’s airfields.
Once a royal hunting forest which takes its name from the village of Rockingham where William I built his castle. It covers an area of 200 square miles and lies between the River Wellend and River Nene. It has a rich and varied landscape, with farmland, open pasture and pockets of woodland and villages built from stone.
If you are a visitor to this magnificent forest, soaking up the beautiful views. Be sure to prepare yourself for all types of terrains and ensure you have the correct waking shoes on to prevent injuries from happening.
Tips for walking:
- Pack the right shoes and socks! Nothing worse than sore feet or wet and cold feet.
- Take plenty of water and food to keep yourself hydrated.
- A waterproof coat is always a good idea.
- A map of the forest is a good idea, just incase you get lost.
- A torch incase it gets too dark, you wouldn’t want to get lost in an ancient hunting forest.
- A first aid kit for the smaller injuries.
- Some wipes for when it gets a bit messy.
The list is endless.
