EAST HADDON PINOCCHIO TRAIL | 5.6 MILES | MODERATE| NORTHANTS

August 2 @ 9:45 am - 12:30 pm BST

Join us on a fantastic mini-adventure, including little woods, gorgeous villages and epic Northamptonshire views.

ABOUT THE WALK:

We call this the Pinocchio walk as the map is shaped like Pinocchio's head!

This trail includes lots of things to see, from a fence full of wooden clogs to beautiful woods and a historic church. The views are spectacular, but there are quite a few stiles to cross (hence we only ask people to bring smaller dogs on this one).

ROUND ROBIN QUESTION: What do you do to relax?

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 and seek out the walk leader who will be wearing a red “walk leader” pin badge.

MEETING PLACE: Please park locally and make your way to the church in East Haddon which is where the walk starts.

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.
