The Higham Ferrers Neighbourhood Plan consultation highlighted a support to extend the existing Greenway, – the multi-use cycle and footpath that currently runs from John Clark Way in Rushden to the Ferrers School, to encourage safe off road access in and around the town.
We are working closely with the East Northamptonshire Greenway Board to realise this ambition by sourcing funding in order to open a section that would continue the route from Queensway towards Kimbolton Road. See link to map. More »

The Nene Valley Festival is being organised through the Destination Nene Valley project, which aims to promote the Nene Valley as a competitive, sustainable destination offering wildlife and heritage to a mixture of local, national and international audiences.
East Northamptonshire Councillor and Board Member for the Destination Nene Valley project, Sarah Peacock, said:
"Our programme is bigger and better with a strong heritage focus for 2016. We want to inspire more people to connect with the wildlife and heritage of the Nene Valley and we hope that our residents and visitors will enjoy all the activities on offer this autumn."
The festival is one of the key projects within the Nenescape Landscape Partnership scheme, a heritage lottery funded scheme that works in partnership with organisations stretching along the River Nene, to conserve and protect its natural and built history.
Amanda Johnson, Nenescape Project Development Manager, said:
"We are thrilled to be supporting Destination Nene Valley to bring the festival together. It's a brilliant nine-day celebration of everything that makes the Nene Valley special, from its natural beauty to its food and drink and cultural heritage."
