ROADE RAMBLE | 5 MILES | MODERATE| NORTHANTS

May 9 @ 9:45 am - 1:30 pm BST

Join Michael & Shirley for a countryside ramble starting from The Cock Pub in Roade. Enjoy gorgeous Northamptonshire views.

ABOUT THE WALK:

Starting in the picturesque village of Roade, we soon venture off-road. The walk takes us up and over open fields where you will see for miles (spot the alpaca farm in the distance). We walk through a farm and pass a memorial garden (which is beautiful). We get up close and personal with windfarms, take in the quaint hamlet of Courteenhall and visit the church where we will stop for sweets. The final section leads us through woods (and if we are lucky we will spot the bluebells) before looping back to Roade.

ROUND ROBIN QUESTION: Have you ever gone swimming in a lake?

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 who will be wearing a red “walk leader” pin badge.

MEETING PLACE: Meet at the front of The Cock Pub.

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.
