LONG BUCKBY NO WASPS WALK | APPROX 3.8 MILES | MODERATE
January 9 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm GMT
MEETING PLACE: Meet outside the Rugby Club (please park in the streets nearby).
WALK DIRECTOR: Julia Doherty
WALK LEADER: Annette Cunningham
ABOUT THE WALK – grade: Moderate Route
You may be wondering why we called this the “no wasps” walk? Well, the last time we walked this route in the summer it was riddled with wasps at various points on the walk. I am pleased to report that it is now wasp free so we can enjoy the trail and all of its beauty.
This walk will include a few inclines that will get your heart pumping, as well as a few stiles which are not very dog friendly. Saying that, we have some super dog-friendly stiles with their own little gates at the beginning of the walk! We will spot duck ponds, fabulous views, some amazing histroy as we weave through the back streets of Long Buckby and around the church. Come and join us for a fun filled walk.
WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU
- A good torch (no head torches please as they tend to blind people!)
- Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).
- Hi-vis vests are now back. Please make sure you have a reflective jacket /vest/armband (essential on all winter hikes). If you don't have one, then we have plenty of spares that you can borrow for the evening.
- A drink and snacks.
ROUND ROBIN QUESTION: Does your current car have a name? What is it?
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? No. Just bring yourself and then tell the organisers your name when you arrive. We will then check you in.
