    There is plenty of our country's history and heritage to interest the walker on this short trail through the Northamptonshire countryside from Braunston Marina to the beautiful village of Ashby St. Ledgers: Narrowboats at the junction of the Oxford and Grand Union canals; a village with thatched homes and an imposing Manor House renovated by Sir Edwin Lutyens with an infamous role in the Gunpowder Plot; an ancient church with a Norman tower, medieval wall paintings, 15c Rood Screen, Jacobean triple decker Pulpit and much else. A walker's guide can be obtained form the Marina's shop. For more information see: http://www.ashby-st-ledgers-church.org.uk/ and also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashby_St_Ledgers
