HELLIDON HOP | 4 MILES/ 9K STEPS | MODERATE | NORTHANTS
September 2, 2019 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm BST
ABOUT THE WALK – grade: Moderate Route
The first half of this walk is along a gated road from Hellidon to Upper Catesby, a narrowed tarmac lane with gates and cattle grids. A circuit is made via clearly marked grassy bridleways over open pastureland. There are no stiles on this route, therefore it is a dog-friendly route.
Arbury Hill at 735 ft the highest point in Northamptonshire is very close to the route. The peaceful Upper and Lower Catesby are hamlets rather than villages.
Points of interest:-
- A windmill with its sails long gone is now a residential dwelling.
- The giant telecommunications tower is prominent throughout the walk.
- Hellidon Church was silenced along with other church bells during the second world war.
The Red Lion Pub
The Red Lion is a free house serving many different real ales, including Courage Directors, Ruddles and Hook Norton. Cider is on draught. Apart from bar snacks, such as sandwiches etc, there are numerous other meal offerings.
