**NEW** COTTESBROOKE CIRCULAR PUB WALK | 6 MILES | MODERATE| NORTHANTS
March 30 @ 9:45 am - 2:00 pm BST
ABOUT THE WALK:
This is a new walk for the AG portfolio (thanks Kelly), however, I believe the original route appeared on the Northamptonshire Walks Website – and it is absolutely stunning. The views are some of the best in Northamptonshire, although I guarantee that you will get the heart pumping on some of the hills – most a good proportion of the trail is a simple track and easy underfoot.
At the end of the walk, we will make our way to The Crown Pub and perhaps have a spot of lunch for those that are interested.
Please arrive by 9.45 am we will set off at 10 am sharp. If this is your first AG walk, then please arrive nice and early and seek out the walk leader to receive your new walker briefing.
ROUND ROBIN: What are you binge watching on Netflix / Amazon Prime at the moment?
30 mins or so before the beginning of each walk, Dave (the mobile shop) will be present with hot tea/coffee/chocolate and snacks. These are free, however, there will be a donation tin available to help replenish the stock levels. We also have merchandise such as badges, beanies, caps and hoodies.
MEETING PLACE: This is a difficult one as there is no actual location. Please park respectfully, somewhere along Station Road (there are a few laybys) and then make your way to the What3Words location. Julia will also share the location via WhatsApp Location Sharing facility once she has arrived (so just click on the pin if you are struggling to find us).
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.
