About the walk

This is a shortish walk of about 4 miles, about 2 stiles, very rural and mainly flat on tracks, on footpaths and through crops with well cleared paths - scenic landscapes and charming villages.

Proper walking boots recommended – some of the ground is uneven and could be a bit muddy should it have rained.

There is much added interest, historical and general including a rest in the cool church with tea and biscuits provided. The nice man with the kettle is an expert who can answer most questions that arise.

What should I wear / take?

Wear or take clothing that is fit for the weather. Waterproof, sturdy footwear is needed for these walks. Please ensure that you have enough drinking water, sun protection and refreshments to consume during the walk.  If icy underfoot, walking poles may be an advantage. High visibility tops welcome but not essential.

Do I need to book a place? 

No! Bookings are not necessary. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before the stated walk start time at the meeting point.  If you want to check whether (because of weather conditions) the walk is going ahead on the day, please call Colin on 07939 076486.

Do I need to pay to attend the walk?

No. These walks are free to attend and are planned and organised by our dedicated team of volunteer walk leaders.  Please contact the Active Together Harborough team for details of free walk leader training courses on 01858 828282 or activetogether@harborough.gov.uk
