RR – TOWCESTER GRAFTON WAY TRAIL | 5.2 MILES | MODERATE | NORTHANTS

May 12 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm BST

A delightful walk that includes the bluebells in Wood Burcote then loops back along the Grafton Way.

ABOUT THE WALK:

Rapid ramble walks are a little bit different to our regular walks. Not only are they faster, but we do not stop for a sweetie break (although we do stop for a quick drink and to catch our breath).

The Towcester walk starts at the short stay car park and then we work our way up towards Wood Burcot and loop back via the Grafton Way Estate.

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: What is your favourite day of the year?

MEETING PLACE:  Meet at the Short Stay Car Park in Towcester.

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): Julia Doherty

IS THIS WALK DOG FRIENDLY? : We try to discourage dogs on the rapid ramble walks as we like to have a good pace (dogs like to stop and go to the toilet often!).

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU

  • Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).
  • A drink. 
  • Hand sanitiser 

RULES TO KEEP YOU SAFE :

  • We walk in all weathers, however, if we have a weather warning then the event will be cancelled.
  • We will only ever walk in groups of 15 or less. If we have more than 15, we will have two walk leaders and walk in opposite directions.
  • Sweets at the halfway stage – we call this “squidge and dip” – hand sanitiser, then dip in for your free sweets. (Please bring your own hand sanitiser)
