BUGBROOKE RAPID RAMBLE WALK | 7.5 MILES | MODERATE | NORTHANTS

July 14 @ 6:15 pm - 8:30 pm BST

Join us for this rapid ramble walk as we walk from Bugbrooke to Nether Heyford and Flore then circle back.

ABOUT THE WALK:

A rapid ramble walk is usually between 3.5-8 miles at a fast pace (16-19 minute miles) These walks have been designed for the experienced walker who is keen to keep a good pace and put in some mileage.

This is a moderate walk with not too many hills and the terrain is good for keeping a faster than normal pace. We leave Bugbrooke and head out over the open countryside and make our way to the village of Nether Heyford. Rebecca will then direct you through the village which has the largest village green in England. You will be navigated over more open fields which will lead you to the village of Flore. Circling back towards Nether Heyford (but on a different route), the walk takes a figure of eight shape. You will end back at Bugbrooke having completed your walk.

ROUND ROBIN: If you could only eat vegetables for the rest of your life, what would be your favourite?

Please arrive by 6.15 pm we will set off at 6.30 pm sharp. If this is your first AG walk, then please arrive nice and early and seek out the walk leader (they will be wearing a red badge) to receive your new walker briefing.

MEETING PLACE: Meet in the church car park, along with a second group who are completing a shorter walk.

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.

WALK LEADER(S): Rebecca Dearing

IS THIS WALK DOG FRIENDLY? As these walks are either fast-paced or long then please consider the other hikers if you intend to bring a dog. The longer walks will most definitely have stiles.

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU

* Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).

* A drink.

* Hand sanitiser

RULES TO KEEP YOU SAFE :

  • We walk in all weathers, however, if we have a weather warning then the event will be cancelled.
  • We will only ever walk in groups of 15 or less. If we have more than 15, we will usually have two walk leaders and walk in opposite directions.
  • Sweets at the halfway stage – we call this “squidge and dip” – hand sanitiser, then dip in for your free sweets.
