Despite living on the south(ish) side of Northampton for some time, I’ve never been into Salcey Forest – until now.
We went to the visitors centre and cafe and followed one of the walks through the forest. We were able to go up the tree-top walk, which is a gradually sloping set of platforms leading from ground level, up to over 15m high, with a set of steps at the top to take you to 20m – high enough to see above the trees of the forest (you can see Northampton and the lift tower in the distance!).
Incredibly impressive and well worth a visit. You don’t have to worry about kids either, the walk-way is fenced in. Its also pushchair and wheelchair friendly (apart from the steps at the top).
Will be visiting again, probably with bikes and for longer.
