CASTLE ASHBY TEA-SHOP WALK | 4.2 MILES | MODERATE | NORTHANTS

November 24 @ 9:45 am - 1:00 pm GMT

A circular walk that has a mix of views, forest trails, a splendid church and the magic faraway tree! We end the walk with tea and cake!

ABOUT THE WALK:

We set off from the small car park, just behind the rural shopping centre at 10am and follow the trail down towards the brand new Falcon Hotel. The new hotel is amazing and they have created their own footpath trail which takes you through the woods and bypasses the busy road (thank you Falcon Hotel). Enjoy the views over Northamptonshire as we make our way down towards Whiston Church. We walk along the road for a brief period before we venture down the hill and over the ford, through more woods and over fields. We pass a few little villages and finally loop back into Castle Ashby for well-deserved tea and cake.

Please arrive by 9.45 am we will set off at 10 am sharp. If this is your first AG walk then please arrive nice and early to seek out the walk leader to receive your new walker briefing. The walk leader will usually be wearing an AG baseball cap or a yellow high vis vest.

If you are interested in purchasing any AG merchandise, or perhaps some snacks/water for the walk, then “Dave”, the AG mobile shop will be on-site from 9.15 am -9.40 am

MEETING PLACE: There is a small car park just behind the Rural Shopping Centre. Please meet there. (See What3Words).

Note: we often meet in places where there is no postcode, so we encourage you to use What3Words app which will take you to the exact location.
