BRAUNSTON UNHURRIED SHORT WALK | 2.5 MILES | EASY | NORTHANTS
June 2 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm BST
ABOUT THE WALK:
The sapphire walks are short in length and the pace will be an unhurried pace (approximately 22-28 minutes per mile / just over 2 miles per hour). We will walk at your pace, and there will always be a tail walker so that no one gets left behind.
Just look out for the “blue” coloured walks.
The walk will start at the Boathouse Pub (where we can pop in afterwards for a quick drink). We take a stroll along the track that leads up to Wolfhamcote Church and take a quick peak inside this cute little church. We see a hidden medieval village before crossing a bridge and looping back to the start along the canal. No stiles, and mixed terrain.
Please arrive by 6.15 pm we will set off at 6.30 pm sharp. If this is your first walk then please seek out the walk leader who will be wearing a red badge.
ROUND ROBIN QUESTION: Are you an early bird or a night owl?
MEETING PLACE: Meet at the Boathouse Car Park.
Note: we often meet in places where there is no postcode, so we encourage you to use the What3Words app which will take you to the exact location.
