ABOUT THE WALK – grade: EASY
It is time to dust off that Christmas jumper and the Santa hat as we have a festive walk around Daventry Country Park accompanied by the sounds of cheesy Christmas music. Feel free to bring along mice pies and other goodies to share, and the AG team will supply hot chocolate and warm mulled wine.
Starting from iCon Centre Car Park (official name is the Eastern Way Car Park), we will walk the same route as parkrun. We will take a stroll along the old railway line (which is well lit) but then we will walk down a slope and into the country park. We will follow the curve of the lake, which includes a mix of terrain (woods, bridges, and open land).
WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU
- Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).
- Torch – please try to avoid a head torch as we tend to blind each other when chatting. I suggest a chest torch or a hand torch.
- It's just over 3 miles, so please bring a bottle of water
- Money for a drink in the pub afterwards
