Northamptonshire Round

Latest Change:

With the retirement of all members of the Ten Foot Club we have closed down our Petal Walks website on financial grounds.  This site has been updated to reflect this.

Look out for an article on the Northamptonshire Round in the Inspire Magazine produced by Jackson Grundy, the Northamptonshire Estate Agents.

Click here for an article in the Walking magazine written by our good friend Christopher Summerville.

We have had one stalwart character complete the whole 'Round' in a day.  Tony Pancoust did the walk and was kind enough to write up his experiences which we have entered here under Tony's Trek.

Christopher Somerville of the Daily Telegraph joined up with the TFC to sample the pleasures of walking in Northamptonshire with the resulting article appearing in the paper on the 30th October 2004 and we have added a copy to our website

Site last updated: June 2013

The Northamptonshire Round was set up for us to give a walk or selection of walks to others in recompense for the pleasure gained from walks organized by others. It is designed to show people some of the delightful villages and sights around Northamptonshire.

To keep up to date with the situation you may wish to visit this site from time to time and download an update. Alternatively you can contact us by e-mail.

Constructive comments and information on changes will always be welcome at our e-mail address.

Introduction

Back in the dim distant past 5 fellows got together to walk some of the long distant foot paths that appeared to be around the countryside. Some wag named it the Ten Foot Club where, between the five of us, we measure over 28 feet tall.

Since that first fateful day we have walk in excess of 2,000 miles in all weathers, (mainly tipping it down with rain) and have covered England from East to West and from South Coast to the bottom of the Pennine Way.

The club has raised money for the Macmillan nurses by completing a charity walk of the Macmillan Way. It has also been involved in the route finding for the Jurassic Way across Northamptonshire.
