A walker's group has just appointed a new president, who has pledged to step up the fight to gain access to a local footpath.
Northamptonshire Ramblers has elected 80-year-old Bob Coles as its new head, with the octogenarian promising to fight for the restoration of a missing path on the county's Nene Way.
The campaign will see a rally being held in the village of Lilford on June 9th to put pressure on the county council to act.
Chairman of the Northamptonshire branch of Ramblers David Craddock welcomed Mr Coles to his new post, saying: "We've kept strong links with Bob since he retired from our executive committee two years ago.
"He has always given us advice and guidance when we needed it."
Walkers keen to buy rucksacks
and a walking pole
so they can explore the county's countryside may wish to walk the Nene Way.
It runs from the source of the river Nene at Badby in the south of the county to the village of Wansford on the border with Lincolnshire.
