ABOUT THE WALK – grade: moderate
Starting from the main car park we will head towards the lake. In the summer months, you will see heron, swans and many other forms of wildlife. There is also a geocaching trail on this route! But this evening we will just enjoy the peace of the still water, good conversation whilst we amble around the lake and through the woods and park. Torches are essential for certain aspects of this walk, so please be prepared.
Furry friends are welcome on this walk.

- A drink and snacks
AFTER THE EVENT
We will be grabbing a quick coffee at the cafe, everyone is welcome to join us.
THE LAST TIME WE WALKED…
We often take videos and photos along the route and produce a lovely memory which is showcased on YouTube and Facebook. Check out the video here:
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? No. Just bring yourself and then tell the organisers your name when you arrive. We will then check you in.
How fast is the walk? We often split the groups into two. A fast-paced walk and a more regular paced walk. We always have a tail walker with every group so no-one is left behind.
IF YOU WISH TO RETURN…
As a Grade 2 listed building, Delapre Abbey is within the top eight % of heritage properties in the UK and is one of just 46 sites listed by Historic England as a registered battlefield. Inside the Abbey, there are five different, interactive storytelling zones to discover which reveal the fascinating history of the building fro its life as a nunnery, witnessing the events of the Battle of Northampton unfold, to its heyday as a scandal-ridden Victorian country home.
