Roman Road to Irchester

Bozeat to Wollaston

7 Km = 4½ miles = 1¾ hours walking + stops

Some patches of woodland along this route have very ancient origins.

Bozeat to the Three Shires Way (1½ Km)

Take the W8 bus from Wellingborough to the Post Office in Bozeat (or park nearby). Head east along Dychurch Lane to the point where it turns sharp left. Take the footpath to the south east (not the lane continuing east). At the next gate, follow the field edge to another gate then the path, slightly south of due east to the Trig Point.

Three Shires Way (1 Km)

Follow the Three Shires Way north-east

Dungee Road (650m)

Dungee Road links several small villages and so does not carry heavy volumes of traffic. However, some motorists drive fast so take care. Half way along this section Harold Road from Bozeat runs left from a T junction.

The Roman Road (1½ Km)

The Roman Road to Irchester carries straight ahead where the tree-lined minor road to Hinwick and Poddington kicks right.

Byway to Wollaston (1½ Km)

A little over a kilometer along the Roman Road is a T junction in the byways. The lane off to left (west) heads to Wollaston.

Wollaston (1 Km)

From the edge of Wollaston, follow Hinwick Road to the west to The Nag's Head in the centre of the village. The W8 bus stops here to return to Bozeat or to Wellingborough.
