Rockingham Forest

The Rockingham Forest is an area of some 200 square miles in North-East Northamptonshire, lying between the Rivers Welland and Nene and the towns of Stamford and Kettering. It has a rich and varied landscape, with farmland, open pasture, pockets of woodland and villages built from local stone.
The forest offers plenty of routes for walking, cycling and riding, and is rich in wildlife with birds of prey including owls, buzzards and kites and other animals such as deer and foxes.
At weekends the RSPB provide guided walks for a nominal charge.
