UPTON & KISLINGBURY LOOP | 5 MILES | MODERATE| NORTHANTS

January 10 @ 9:45 am - 12:30 pm GMT

Enjoy the delights of the new Upton Country Park, along with fishing lakes and of course the lovely village of Kislingbury.

ABOUT THE WALK:

Michael & Shirley are experienced leaders and their walks are usually at a slightly faster pace than our regular walks. They will never leave anyone behind, but if you like to walk at a good pace then this walk is for you. Upton Country Park has been revamped over the last few years and now it is a very pleasant place to walk, especially in the winter months. We can guarantee that it will be a mud-free walk!

Please arrive by 9.45 am we will set off at 10 am sharp. If this is your first AG walk, then please arrive nice and early and seek out the walk leader to receive your new walker briefing. The walk leader will usually be wearing an AG baseball cap, or a yellow high vis vest.

MEETING PLACE: In the main Upton Country Park car park (free parking).

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.
