A series of sensory walks – designed to give those with complex disabilities more opportunity to be active – are now available in five of Northamptonshire’s Country Parks.
The walks are part of a wider national project which has seen the disability charity Sense work with Ordnance Survey, using money from Sport England, to establish the walks throughout the country.
In Northamptonshire the walks are available at:
• Barnwell Country Park – North Northants
• Brixworth Country Park – West Northants
• Fermyn Woods Country Park – North Northants
• Irchester Country Park – North Northants
• Sywell Country Park – North Northants
Sensory Walks enable people with complex disabilities explore the outdoors and engage more meaningfully with nature.
Each of the OS Maps app routes come with accessibility information including key milestones, and sensory highlights that are suitable for people with sensory impairments and complex disabilities.
The maps are available via the free OS Maps App using either your web browser or can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
From now you can discover Sensory Walks routes local to you. You can find a walk or download the OS Maps App online.
