Walk Description:

We’ll kick start our senses (and our body) with a warm up in the car park before getting into our stride by taking the pathway around the allotments, across the road and down the path to Bloody Corner. We will then follow the lane down to the river’s edge.  Here we have options depending on the group needs: Option 1.     We will continue to follow the tree covered path until we reach the edge of a housing estate on Windmill lane where we will once again enter the National Trust area, passing through allotments and a small orchard to the Northam leisure centre.  Option 2.     As above but we can incorporate various Nordic walking techniques in the allotments while burning off more calories. Option 3.  The penultimate option is only for the most energetic of walkers and takes us along the river past the shipyard and onto Wooda road before once again returning via the main road & Bloody Corner and retrace our steps to the meeting place. Option 4. The final option is to combine any of the above walks until we venture down to the Northam burrows via gates 2/3, across the golf course and exit via gates 2/3 and make our way back through Northam to the start point.

All routes finish at the meeting place for the cool down.

Please note that there arre no facilities or refreshments available at the Leisure centre but the Durrant hotel is just a 5min drive away.
