Old, Northamptonshire

Leader: Janet Long

That’s not Old Northamptonshire, it’s Old in Northamptonshire.

Janet Long will be leading this roughly 8 mile walk from Old, over fields and along paths to Hanging Houghton, and thence to Scaldwell before returning to Old. There a “some” stiles after Scaldwell but I am assured they are easy to get over. The pub stop is The White Horse in Old (///people.totally.cemented) where we get to relax after this easy-going walk.

Although the start of this walk is within the 20 mile radius (as the crow flies) of Fleckney, the actual mileage is in the order of 22 to 23 miles so please be prepared to compensate your driver accordingly. No doubt some arrangement can be made before we set off from the Fleckney car park at 9:30 am. Drivers can park on the road near the pub (///people.totally.cemented) wherever you can an we will set off from there.

General information:

The Fleckney Walking Club meet every other Sunday for a walk of about 7 to 9 miles with a pub stop somewhere along the route.
We leave the village car park at 9:30 a.m. (///loses.always.huts).
For these walks you are advised to wear good quality walking boots and carry weatherproof clothing.
We suggest you also bring refreshments as a coffee stop is also usually on the cards.
For those who are car-sharing to walks outside of Fleckney, passengers are requested to subsidise their driver by the amount of 20p per mile (one way). For example, if the start of the walk was 10 miles from Fleckney the fee would be 10 x 20p = £2.

If you fancy leading a walk, there are plenty of ideas for walks here.

During the summer months we also have Thursday evening walks of about 4 to 5 miles in length.
These generally start and end at a pub!
We meet at the village car park, by 7 p.m. (///loses.always.huts).

In the event of a walk being cancelled due to inclement weather (or any other reason) the walk leader will communicate the cancellation by email in the first instance and also be at the start meeting point to advise any members who miss the email.

The annual cost to join the Fleckney Walking Club is £10 (Sundays and Thursdays) or £5 (Thursdays only) payable on your first walk.
