ECTON & SYWELL TEASHOP TRAIL | 5.2 MILES | MODERATE | NORTHANTS

May 16 @ 9:45 am - 1:30 pm BST

A fabulous walk with lush meadows, friendly horses, happy pigs and of course a teashop in the middle!

ABOUT THE WALK:

As we leave the small village of Ecton following the footpath into lush meadows the sound of the busy road behind us is soon a distant memory. We say hello to some very friendly horses and a shetland pony, walk by the farm shop that you may never have known about previously, before making our way into Sywell Country Park.

There are lots of things to see here, so get your camera ready! We will point out the butterfly meadow, and small bits of history as we make the loop around the gorgeous Sywell Reservoir. We will stop to chat to the happy pigs, and the cattle, and watch the geese flying overhead. Before we exit the park we will grab a cuppa at the Pump House Cafe and perhaps a hot sausage roll or slice of cake.

ROUND ROBIN QUESTION: Where was your first overseas holiday?

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: Meet outside the pub 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.
