'Cold Ashby is a small rural community in the Northamptonshire Uplands. It is not within the boundaries of a National Park, nor is it an accepted tourist area like its neighbours in the Cotswolds. It is situated in an area of beautiful undulating farmland which, for me, encapsulates the appeal of the English countryside. There are some delightful walks in close proximity which, as former Parish Path Warden, I would like to share with you as a visitor to this site ...'
