ABOUT THE WALK – grade: Moderate Route
Norton is a small picturesque village with a population of about 400, set in the beautiful countryside in the middle of Northamptonshire. From the Church, we will be turning right and completing a 3.5-mile walk that takes you along a little-used track and then down onto the canal. It can be a bit muddy at this time of year, so please bring good footwear and a torch. We will walk over a little bridge at Norton Junction Circuit and when walking this in the summertime I will show you all a few hidden boxes of treasure!
Dogs are welcome on this 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.
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.
