Discovery Walks

Exploring Northamptonshire Discovery Walks take place on alternative Thursday afternoons at 2 pm. The walks are based mainly in East Northamptonshire.  The approximate distance of each walk is between 4-5 miles. There is no need to book - just turn up in good time to put on your boots for a prompt departure.  Stout shoes and waterproofs recommended and all walkers must be prepared for stiles and rough ground.  Dogs must be on a lead throughout the walk.

Walks with   in front have pictures of the day. Please enjoy.

I am working with partners to deliver a festival for the Nene Valley. The date is 19-27 September and the theme will be outdoor adventure. I was wondering whether you were organising any walks over this period and if not, would you consider including any to cover the festival period. I look forward to hearing from you. Regards
