Heyford Amblers have been formed since 2002 and walk every Tuesday, leaving the village green, by the bus stop, at 10:30. We walk at about 2 miles an hour and talk a lot faster, and we usually number about a dozen. We do about 3-4 miles, returning to the village by 12:30, finishing the morning with a drink and sandwich at the local.
Once a month we organise a longer walk, which we try to make on the second Sunday in the month, and the average age drops a bit as we have people that are normally working during the week. For this monthly event we travel further afield, up to about 20 miles from the village of Nether Heyford where the majority of us live, and we regularly have walkers from Daventry, Duston, and even as far away as Gilmorton in Leicestershire, although they are friends. We welcome anyone, young or old, regular or one-offs, so please feel free to just turn up wearing sturdy footwear (not just that) and join us. It seems best if we meet at the start of any walk so that people have the option of what to do when the walk is finished, some like to go on to elsewhere for the afternoon, some like to eat out and some go home.
We try and organise about 5 miles for this walk and always tell you it’s “downhill all the way”. That’s about all there is to know about us so thank you for looking us up and we look forward to meeting you if and when you feel the need of a bit of fresh air and exercise.
