TOWCESTER / ROTHERSTHORPE RAMBLE | APPROX 15 MILES | MODERATE| NORTHANTS

April 24 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm BST

Join us for this lovely ramble that takes you through lots of quaint villages, over open fields and woods.

ABOUT THE WALK:

A rapid ramble walk is either a shorter walk, but fast-paced (16-19 minute miles) Or, a longer walk at a good pace (from 10-20 miles in length). These walks have been designed for the experienced walker who is keen to keep a good pace and put in some mileage.

Today's walk was a trail that was completed during lockdown (see vlog below). It is full of wildlife and has a range of terrain. If you are training for a long hike then this is a walk for you. Remember your packed lunch!

ROUND ROBIN: Which is better, Christmas, Easter or birthdays?

Please arrive by 8.45 am we will set off at 9am sharp. If this is your first AG walk, then please arrive nice and early and seek out the walk leader (they will be wearing a red badge) to receive your new walker briefing.

MEETING PLACE: Meet at Long Stay Car Park (free parking) in Towcester

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): Emily Wright

IS THIS WALK DOG FRIENDLY? As these walks are either fast-paced or long then please consider the other hikers if you intend to bring a dog. The longer walks will most definitely have stiles.

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU

* Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).

* A drink.

* Hand sanitiser

* Packed lunch

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 usually 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.
