WASHLANDS & GREAT HOUGHTON EVENING WALK | 4.5 MILES | MODERATE | NORTHANTS

August 25 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm BST

Walk through one of Northampton's hidden gems as you watch the birds fly over this amazing nature reserve.

ABOUT THE WALK:

This rapid ramble starts out at the pub as we work our way through the industrial estate to the canal. We follow the canal which leads us up to the magical nature reserve. We walk around 50% of the reserve before taking a side trail up to the little village of Great Houghton where we will have a quick break. We then loop back in a different direction to finish the second half of the nature reserve. This is a fabulous walk where we can get a good pace going.

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 who will be wearing a red badge.

ROUND ROBIN QUESTION: Are you a National Trust Member?

MEETING PLACE:  We will meet in the pub car park (and call in for a drink at the end of the walk)

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): Mike Wilcox

IS THIS WALK DOG FRIENDLY? Not for this one as we have stiles and we like to walk at a fast pace on the rapid rambles.

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU

  • Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).
  • A drink.
