KISLINGBURY & UPON CIRCULAR PUB WALK | 3.9 MILES | NORTHANTS WALK

December 16, 2021 @ 6:15 pm - 8:30 pm GMT

A perfect winter walk that includes the delights of the new Upton Country Park and ending in the local pub for a drink!

ABOUT THE WALK:

This is a perfect winter walk as we dodge the mud and enjoy a circular trail from Kislingbury Football Club Car Park. We will enjoy the new Upton Country Park, and the fishing lakes – torches will still be needed as public lighting is limited in certain areas on this walk.

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 (usually in an Adventure Geek baseball cap, or high vis jacket) to receive your new walker briefing.

What to bring: A Torch, a bright or reflective jacket and a bottle of water. We have a mobile shop which will be available where you can purchase snacks, and merchandise (price list is here). Members – I simply add the cost to your account, so no cash needed.

MEETING PLACE:  Meet in the main car park – no parking fees.

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.

IS THIS WALK DOG FRIENDLY? Yes, little furry friends will enjoy this walk. (Please make sure they have a reflective jacket or light collar).

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU

  • A torch is essential for all night walks from October to March. We recommend this brand if you do not already have a torch.
  • A bright or reflective jacket (we can lend you a reflective vest if you do not have one readily available).
  • Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).
  • A drink. 
  • Hand sanitiser 

RULES TO KEEP YOU SAFE :

  • We walk in all weathers, however, if we have a weather warning then the event will be cancelled.
  • 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. (Please bring your own hand sanitiser)
  • Your walk leader is not allowed to carry personal possessions for you.  Please bring a bag with drink/pockets to carry keys/hats/gloves etc  (think about supporting the AG brand by purchasing an AG rucksack!). 
  • If you wish to bring and PPE, masks etc, please do.  All walk leaders will also carry sanitiser, protective gloves and the first aid kit.
