Other stuff to see and do


Please find below some titbits of information which we hope you will find useful, especially if you are not familiar with our local area.  They have been put together in a rather random fashion, so please do "reed on" to find out what else you can do when you visit Quarry Walk at Pastures Farm, Grendon. NN7 1JD.


Due to open in Spring 2016 is White Mills Marina, which is a  brand new purpose built riverside marina on the beautiful and tranquil River Nene., which is just along the road.  With 141 berths, ambling along the river bank and seeing all the boats in differing shapes and sizes promises to make for an interesting stroll.



For food, you could always try The Half Moon pub in the heart of our local community in Grendon, where fresh homemade meals are served both at lunchtime and in the evenings.  It is worth remembering that the pub is sadly shut on a Sunday evening and all day Monday.



Quarry Walk is surrounded by many places of interest, if you are planning to call in to Earls Barton then All Saints Church with its ancient Saxon Tower that dates back to 970AD is certainly worth a visit, as is David Jeyes on the Square.  The delightful pharmacy is a typical rabbit warren,  boasting the Dolly Lodge (perfect for dolls house enthusiasts), Market Harborough Building Society, Earls Barton Museum, New Apotofcoffee coffee shop as well as a vast selection of gifts to peruse.  



Take a drive or walk in the opposite direction and you will find yourself at  Castle Ashby Rural Shopping Yard which is situated in the grounds of one of Northamptonshire's most stunning stately homes.  Castle Ashby Rural Shopping Yard consists of a number of individual shops, with something for everybody.  The delicatessen attracts customers far and wide and makes wonderful browsing!  If you are after a light bite, then The Buttery is certain to satisfy.



For those wanting to continue their ramble across the fields towards Grendon, or even fancy taking in some water sports, then Grendon Lakes is just up your street.  From water skiing and fishing through to jet skiing  they have it all.
