HARPOLE HOP | 4.5 MILES | MODERATE | NORTHANTS

February 15 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm GMT

A slightly longer evening walk taking in the views of Duston and Kislingbury, and along the Upton Country Park Trail. Dog friendly.

🥾 ABOUT THE WALK 🥾

This walk starts off walking through the village of Harpole and takes us along little hidden footpaths and over a few stiles before crossing into Upton Country Park. We loop back towards Kislingbury. We play “frogger” as we cross the A45 back to Harpole.

🗣 WALK LEADERS: Julia Doherty

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 walk leader badge.

🐶 Is this a dog-friendly walk? Small dogs only as there are a few stiles on this walk.

❓ ROUND-ROBIN QUESTION: Have you read any good books lately?

☕️ REFRESHMENTS: We can pop into the Turnpike for a drink after the walk.

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.

🎒 WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU

  • A torch (please no head torches as they tend to blind people). We recommend THIS torch if you do not already have one.
  • P lease also wear bright clothing (hig his or a runners strip, arm lights or something similar) – safety first.
  • Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).
  • A drink.

⛑ RULES TO KEEP YOU SAFE :

  • We walk in all weathers, however, if we have a weather warning then the event may be cancelled. You will be notified by email, but we will also update the Facebook event if we need to cancel a walk.
  • We will only ever walk in groups of 15 or less. If we have more than 15, we will have two walk leaders and walk in opposite directions.
  • Sweets at the halfway stage – we call this “squidge and dip” – hand sanitiser, then dip in for your free sweets. If we have furry friends, then we also have “treats” at the halfway stage.
