UPTON & SIXFIELDS RESERVOIR LOOP | APPROX 5.5 MILES | NORTHANTS |

May 23 @ 9:45 am - 1:00 pm BST

If you enjoy walking along the water then this is a walk for you! We enjoy a stretch along the canal as well as a loop around Sixfields Res

ABOUT THE WALK:

Starting from Upton Country Park it is not long before we venture off to the canal and look out for the herons. The walk leads us to Sixfields Reservoir which is a one-hectare nature reserve in Northampton. It is managed by the Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire. We will be walking a circular route around the river which is well-trodden and paved in many places. It is a moderate walk as there are a few slightly overgrown areas and the walk is over 3 miles in length. There are a few areas that are slightly off-road and includes some declines and exposed tree roots. This walk is dog-friendly, so feel free to bring along your furry friends.

ROUND ROBIN QUESTION: What was your worst channel crossing?

Please arrive by 9:45 am we will set off at 10:00 am sharp. If this is your first AG walk, then please arrive nice and early and seek out the walk leader who will be wearing a red “walk leader” pin badge.

MEETING PLACE: Meet at the main car park (see W3W link below).

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.
