SW – DAVENTRY COUNTRY PARK UNHURRIED WALK | 3.2 MILES | EASY | NORTHANTS

May 22 @ 9:45 am - 12:30 pm BST

Similar to the Parkrun route, we will take a leisurely social walk around the park with sweets at the halfway stage.

ABOUT THE WALK:

Our sapphire walks have been created for those that like to walk at a slower pace. Perhaps you have an older “furry friend” who likes to plod and sniff the flowers, or you like to have a chat and take photos on a walk.

The sapphire walks are short in length, usually fairly flat trails with no stiles and will be an unhurried pace (approximately 22-28 minutes per mile / just over 2 mile per hour). There will always be a tail walker so that no-one gets left behind.

Just look out for the “blue” coloured walks.

This walk starts at the gravel car park just behind the Icon Centre in Daventry, and follows the “black path” before descending into the lush green meadows on the outskirts of the country park. We then take a leisurely stroll around the country park, stopping for sweets at the halfway stage (supplied by your walk leader).

ROUND ROBIN QUESTION: Do you have any phobias?

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 Icon Car Park (free parking)

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.
