RR – LONG BUCKBY WINDMILL LOOP | 4.5 MILES | MODERATE | NORTHANTS
March 17 @ 6:15 pm - 8:00 pm GMT
ABOUT THE WALK:
A rapid ramble walk is either a shorter walk, but fast-paced (16-19 minute miles). Or, a longer walk at a good pace (from 10-20 miles in length). These walks have been designed for the experienced walker who is keen to keep a good pace and put in some mileage.
Starting from Middlemore Pub Car Park we work our way out towards the woods and open fields. We witness some fabulous scenery as the walk takes us through a section of the Jurassic Way. Ending up in Braunston with a stretch along the canal, we then take the new footpath back towards Daventry and end up in the pub.
Please arrive by 6.15 pm we will set off at 6.30 pm 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: Are you a savoury or sweet person?
MEETING PLACE: Meet at Middlemore Car Park.
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.

WALK LEADER(S): Emily Wright
IS THIS WALK DOG FRIENDLY? As these walks are either fast-paced or long then please consider the other hikers if you intend to bring a dog. The longer walks will most definitely have stiles.

RULES TO KEEP YOU SAFE :
