FISH & CHIP WALK NORTON RAPID RAMBLE | 3.5 MILES | MODERATE | NORTHANTS

April 7 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm BST

A brisk walk from Norton church which takes us along a country track, along the canal and over a few fields. We end up in the pub!

ABOUT THE WALK:

Norton is a small picturesque village with a population of about 400, set in the beautiful countryside in the middle of Northamptonshire. From the Church, we will be turning right and completing a 3.5-mile walk that takes you along a little-used track and then down onto the canal. It can be a bit muddy at this time of year, so please bring good footwear and a torch. We will walk over a little bridge at Norton Junction Circuit and when walking this in the summertime I will show you all a few hidden boxes of treasure!

AFTER THE WALK

We have booked a table with Norton Chippy (within the pub). If you would like to join us for a bite to eat after the walk then please select your menu choice here.

Please arrive by 6.15 pm we will set off at 6.30 pm sharp. If this is your first walk then please seek out the walk leader who will be wearing a red badge.

ROUND ROBIN QUESTION: A new survey suggests most Brits are in a rage for 11 minutes every day. Does that sound true for you and what silly things leave you raging?

MEETING PLACE:  Meet outside the church in Norton

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.
