Grafton Way

The Grafton Way is Northamptonshire's second County Path, it stretches for 11.5 miles between Cosgrove and Greens Norton where it meets the Knightley Way.

It is named after the Dukes of Grafton, who were large land-owners in the southern part of the County throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
