BRAMPTON VALLEY AND THE SECRET GARDEN | 6.5 MILES | MODERATE | NORTHANTS
March 3 @ 9:45 am - 1:00 pm GMTFree
MEETING PLACE: Meet in the car park of the Brampton Halt Pub – look out for Julia in a yellow hi-vis jacket.
WALK LEADER: Julia Doherty
ABOUT THE WALK – grade: Moderate Route.
This is one of my favourite walks as there is simply so much to see and do. We walk along the Brampton Valley Way and spot old trains and station houses. We then explore lush green water meadows and woodland areas as well as the wandering through the delightful village of Church Brampton. Church Brampton is one of those picture-postcard villages with thatched cottages and houses that make you go “ooooh”. I guarantee we will smell wood burning stoves in the air as we pass through. I am not going to tell you where, but part of this walk I will take you through a secret garden that I discovered whilst out geocaching a few years ago. To enter the garden we need to go through a secret door!
WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU
- It may be muddy, so good footwear is essential, please.
- It's a longer walk than usual, so please bring a small rucksack with some essentials. ie: small first aid kit, snacks and water.
- It's just under 7 miles so be prepared to be out for a good few hours.
AFTER THE WALK
A few of us will be having lunch at the Brampton Halt Pub. It is a country pub in old stationmaster's house, with booths, wood burner, dining area and terrace tables. To find out more please visit: https://www.thebramptonhalt.co.uk/
