SW – TOWCESTER WATERMEADOWS UNHURRIED TRAIL | NORTHANTS | 2 MILES
May 12 @ 6:15 pm - 8:00 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.
The walk starts at Towcester Short Stay Car Park and we walk along the river looping back towards the town centre. We will show you a hidden thatched cottage and weave around the church grounds, before our final loop of the fabulous new Watermeadows Footpath Trail. No hills, no stiles, and no uneven ground.
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 favorite junk food or snack?
MEETING PLACE: Tove Short Stay Parking (free)
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.
