Next Meetup

Local pantomime themed walk, 8 mile walk, Harrold-Odell Country Park
This walk is Pantomime themed and will hopefully get you in the Christmas spirit. Although not critical, walkers are encouraged to come along as a Pantomime character (use your imaginations). We will meet at the Harrold-Odell Country Park (SatNav users can use the postcode MK43 7DS), where they ask for a £1 donation for the car park. The curtain will rise at 10:30am on our production of "Ramblers in Boots". Liquid refreshments will be available in the interval (at a local pub). Feel free to bring a packed lunch for eating at a suitable point en-route. The walk is around 8.25 miles. There is a coffee shop at the country park if we get back in time. As you can imagine the walk will feature a few Pantomime elements so it's sure to be good fun (oh no it isn't!). Your walk leader is Kevin (aka Dame Trott).

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!
