Summary: The Jurassic Way is a long distance footpath in England that connects the Oxfordshire town of Banbury with the Lincolnshire town of Stamford. It is designated and way-marked throughout its length which largely follows an ancient ridgeway traversing central Endland. Most of its 88 miles route is in Northamptonshire on the Jurassic limestone ridge. The trail goes near to the Oxford and Grand Union Canals, past the Great Central Railway's Catesby Tunnel and viaduct, the River Welland, the 82-arch viaduct at Harringworth and Rockingham Castle. It connects with the Grand Union Canal Walk, Hereward Way, Macmillan Ways, Midshires Way and Oxford Canal Walk.
