SUMMER LEYS EVENING WALK | 4.5 MILES | MODERATE | NORTHANTS
September 28 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm BST
Note, please arrive by 6.15 pm we will set off at 6.30 pm sharp.
MEETING PLACE: Layby at top of the lane adjacent to Summer Leys Nature Reserve (NOT in the main car park) – click here for exact location.
- The main car park will be open when we start, but is locked at 7:30pm, so we cannot park there for the walk.
- There is a single track road near the nature reserve which has ample parking for us. Use the What3Words code below to find the meeting place.
- If navigating by map: Coming from Northampton, navigate to Summer Leys (take J11 on the A45). Go past the main entrance and continue for about half a mile. You get to a sharp right hand bend with a narrow lane going off to the left. Take this and continue all the way along until you pass a house on the right. We'll be meeting at the top of the lane, just before the bridge. Park as near to there as you can.
WALK LEADER: Paul Drake
ABOUT THE WALK – grade: Moderate Walk
WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU
- Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).
- A torch is now essential, and if you have reflective clothing then this is a bonus (safety first)
- A drink.
- Hand sanitizer
- Sweets or a quick snack for the halfway point.
RULES FOR THE WALK WITH REGARDS TO GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES:-
- We will try to adhere to a 2m rule where possible, however, a 1m social distancing will be required during the walk at all times.
- At the beginning of the walk, we will insist that everyone uses hand sanitizer as we will be touching stiles and gates etc during the walk. (Please bring your own, but your walk leader will also have a supply).
- Your walk leader is not allowed to carry personal possessions for you. Please bring a bag with drink/pockets to carry keys/hats/gloves etc (think about supporting the AG brand by purchasing an AG rucksack!).
- Until restrictions are lifted we are not allowed to assist each other over stiles, ditches etc unless we are from the same household, or in a social bubble. With this in mind, you will need to be fit enough to cope with stiles etc independently.
- If you wish to bring and PPE, masks etc, please do. All walk leaders will also carry sanitizer, protective gloves and the first aid kit.
- If you are contacted through “Track and Trace” and have walked with an AG group within the previous 48 hours, you must notify me and I will pass on to those that have walked.
