LONG BUCKBY WINDMILL LOOP | 4.5 MILES | RAPID RAMBLE | NORTHANTS

August 18 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm BST

Join us for this rapid ramble walk. This lovely walk includes a few hills, windmills, a canal stretch and a very unusual listed building!

ABOUT THE WALK:

This rapid ramble walk will start at the Football Club and weave its way through paved footpaths through the village until we reach open fields. We work our way over a couple of fields and under a tunnel until and then you will see the windmill. We do have to cross the busy A5, but as soon as that is complete we enjoy the peacefulness of the canal towpath which we will follow for a while. The trail loops back over open fields before ending back at the start.

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: Do you collect anything?

MEETING PLACE:  Meet at Long Bucky Football/Rugby Club.

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.
