What we're about

We're a group of people in their 20s, 30s and 40s, from in and around Northamptonshire, who enjoy walking, socialising, and generally having a bit of fun. Our walks are on most weekends and every other Wednesday evening in the summer months, and range from short 3 mile local walks to longer hikes in areas a bit further afield, such as the Peak District, Cotswolds, Chilterns. We also organise regular weekends away to the Peak District, Lake District, Wales, Scotland and coastal areas like Dorset, as well as other destinations. Regular activities and social events are also organised in the Northampton area, e.g. trips to high ropes courses, ski-ing at the MK Snowdome, bowling, as well as cinema trips, meals out, and so on. So if you like walking, want to get a bit fitter, or would like to try out a new activity whilst meeting new friends along the way, you've found the right group! Try us for free We will welcome you on any walk; just choose one suitable for you. RSVP to one of our walks on Meetup and just turn up.

Local Walk - Cogenhoe, circular walk, 9 miles, walk leader Chris

This is a circular 9 mile walk. Please park considerately around the village and meet outside the Royal Oak Pub, Cogenhoe ready to start walking promptly at 10.30am.
The walk goes via the villages of Whiston and Castle Ashby, before we get to our lunch stop in Yardley Hastings. Where hopefully we can eat our packed lunch in the pocket park before heading to the pub for a quick drink.
The afternoon walk is 4.5 miles long and heads out of Yardley Hastings and into the grounds of Castle Ashby house and via the villages of Chadstone and Denton. Hopefully the fields won't be too muddy before we get back to Cogenhoe, but we cannot guarantee this!

Local walk - Olney to Hanslope, linear walk, 10 miles, walk leaders Belind & Tim

This is a 10 mile linear walk, to complete the last section of the long distance bridleway, the Three Shires Way. As we finish the walk in a different place to where we start, we will meet earlier than usual to sort out transport.

Please meet at 10am, by the shops on Gold Street, Hanslope. (Hanslope is where the walk will end). We will then take as few cars as possible to the start of the walk in Olney. (At the end of the walk, we will ask for volunteers to drive the morning drivers from Hanslope back to their cars in Olney).

From Olney, will walk through Emberton Park and along the Ouse Valley way to connect up with the Three Shires footpath. We’ll walk along a ridge with nice views of the surrounding countryside until we reach the pretty village of Tyringham. We then have a section of road walking to connect to the next field section of the path. We’ll then complete the last section of the Three Shires path, which ends in the pretty hamlet of Tathall End. From here we’lll follow field footpaths to Hanslope.

More long-standing members of the group may remember that we walked the rest of the 37 mile Three Shires path, starting at Grafham Water before the pandemic!
