TOWCESTER & SHUTLANGER CIRCULAR | 7 MILES | MODERATE| NORTHANTS
August 8 @ 9:45 am - 1:30 pm BST
ABOUT THE WALK:
We leave the long stay car park and head up Northampton Road in search of the magic archway that leads into the woods. There are a few stiles to cross as we head over a large field that often houses sheep. These are dog-friendly stiles. We weave through the tiny hamlet of Hulcote which is a bit like going back in time, before another long field. We turn right and cross the ford via the footbridge (or go through it if it is hot!). We are then following a track which eventually leads into nun wood. Eventually, we reach the village of Shutlanger where we will stop for a break and free sweets! We then loop back along the road and follow the stream back towards Hulcote. It's not long before we are back on Northampton Road where our cars are parked.
