Sunday 10th February 2019 10:00am Winter Walk and Local History Walk Harringworth (Village Hall) Northamptonshire
Note : Up to the north of our area this year to enjoy a walk of about five miles with a view of the magnificent railway viaduct. Bring a drink for coffee break half-way round, then back to the village hall for the main course of our American lunch on a comfy seat in the warm and dry. This will be followed by a guided history walk around the village for an hour and return to the hall for a chat, tea/coffee, our desserts and to finish at 5.00 pm. Those who wish to remain in the hall are welcome to join in a craft session allowing us to make full use of the hall during the day. This is a totally new type of venture for our group so Roy and Barbara will be most pleased to have your support for the event and it should be worth the travel to this undulating northern part of Northamptonshire, if only to see the impressive viaduct.
