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!

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. We were formed in 2002, not profit making and run by a group or volunteers who are active in the group all of our walks are also published on our group website which is http://www.lgrtr.org.uk

National Walk: Sundon Hills & Sharpenhoe Clappers, 9 miles, walk leader Gavin

Sundon Hills Country Park Car Park

Please meet in the Sundon Hills Country Park Car Park, Harlington Rd, Sundon LU3 3PE, ready to start walking at 10.30am. Please bring a packed lunch as although we may stop at a pub for a drink there will not be an option to order food at the pub.

A delightfully varied walk, starting from the country park then ascending quite steeply onto Sharpenhoe Clappers escarpment, which provides great views across Bedfordshire. The route then follows the John Bunyan Trail towards Pulloxhill, where there is an option for a pub stop. We return through fields, pockets of woodland and the village of Harlington to gradually ascend back to the start point.

This is a leisurely walk for reasonably fit people with at least a little country walking experience. May include unsurfaced rural paths. Walking boots and warm, waterproof clothing are recommended.
