SW – TIFFIELD JOHN MAWBY TRAIL | 3 MILES | EASY | NORTHANTS
May 15 @ 9:45 am - 12:30 pm BST
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.
Today's walk starts at the village green in Tiffield. We walk through the village and past the church before heading up Meadow Rise and onto t a footpath. There are some steps to go up and then we walk across a field. There is a small section of road walking (a nice quiet country road) before turning off onto the bridal way. Turning into a field we are rewarded by some fabulous views. Listen out for the Skylarks while we stop for sweets. We then make our way down some steps and end up on the old railway line (which is known as the John Mawby Trail). This section is beautiful as we walk amongst the trees and then through a pretty pocket park. We end back at the car having walked 3 miles.
ROUND ROBIN QUESTION: What’s the best TV show you’re watching?
