TOWCESTER PRETTY PARKS WALK | 3.2 MILES | EASY | NORTHANTS

February 14 @ 6:15 pm - 8:00 pm GMT

Explore the delights of Towcester and its many hidden parks, which ends with a mini-mountain climb.

ABOUT THE WALK:

This is a fairly easy walk, mainly on flat ground and relatively mud free. It includes the history section of Towcester (with Bury Mount), then across through the fabulous church grounds. We see a thatched cottage in an unusual place, then explore the little parks of Towcester.

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 (usually in an Adventure Geek baseball cap, or high vis jacket) to receive your new walker briefing.

What to bring: A Torch, a bright or reflective jacket and a bottle of water.

At the beginning of most walks, Dave (the mobile shop) will be present with hot tea/coffee/chocolate and snacks. These are free, however, there will be a donation tin available to help replenish the stock levels.

MEETING PLACE: Meet at the entrance to the short stay car park in Towcester (just up from Jackie Oliver Estate Agents).

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? – yep, super dog friendly. Please no extension leads and if you have a ligth up collar then that would be fab.

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU

  • A torch is essential for all night walks from October to March. We recommend this brand if you do not already have a torch.
  • A bright or reflective jacket (we can lend you a reflective vest if you do not have one readily available).
  • 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)
  • 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!). 
  • If you wish to bring any PPE, masks etc, please do.  All walk leaders will also carry sanitiser, protective gloves and the first aid kit.
