If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.

Abington Meadows

An urban reserve, restored for wildlife
The reserve is situated in a very urban part of Northamptonshire and, although it had been neglected for a number of years, the marshy grassland is home to a tremendous diversity of wildlife and falls within the Nene Valley Special Protection Area. This site is managed by the Trust on behalf of Northants County Council and will make a key contribution to the Trust’s vision for the Nene Valley Living Landscape.
Abington Meadows is one of the few sites in Northamptonshire known for Pennyroyal (Mentha pulegiuma) which is a nationally rare member of the mint family. It is also an excellent site for invertebrates - a total of 421 have been recorded on the reserve.
