DELAPRE WHALE WALK | 4 MILES | MODERATE | NORTHANTS
June 30 @ 6:15 pm - 8:30 pm BST
ABOUT THE WALK:
A rapid ramble walk is usually between 3.5-7 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 walk is rather beautiful as we spend most of the trail near the water. We weave our way around Delapre Lake, before turning off and diverting the walk to the Canal. We call this the whale walk as the map is shaped like a whale. We end up walking through the University and we will point out the history as we go. This is a flat walk, but a good one to get the heart pumping.
ROUND ROBIN: What is your favourite way to serve potato?
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 at Delapre Abbey 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.

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.
