WATFORD VILLAGE TRAIL | 3 MILES | EASY WALK | NORTHANTS

April 28 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm BST

Enjoy the delights of Watford Country Park and then a short stroll along the canal on this very unhurried sapphire walk.

ABOUT THE WALK:

The sapphire walks are short in length and it will be an unhurried pace (approximately 22-28 minutes per mile / just over 2 miles per hour). We will walk at your pace, and there will always be a tail walker so that no one gets left behind.

Just look out for the “blue” coloured walks.

This is a lovely walk that starts from the church. We leave the village and descend down the hill before turning right into Watford Country Park. There is a hill at the end of the gated road, so we will just take our time before descending down towards the canal. After a peaceful walk along the canal, we turn off onto the country road and head back towards Watford village.

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: What was your favourite game to play as a child?

MEETING PLACE: Meet outside the church in Watford Village.

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.
