Shorter Morning Walk: Meet at 11.15 am at T​he Boat Inn, Bridge Road, Stoke Bruerne, Postcode NN12 7SB, OS Landranger Map 152, GR 742501. Take a gentle stroll along the Grand Union Canal, through lush fields and wide bridleways that connect the pretty villages of Shutlanger, Stoke Bruerne and Blisworth – but beneath your feet, ghosts are said to haunt the dark tunnel under the hill!

This year we again have a choice of two walks, aimed to finish at around the same time to enable us to enjoy our Christmas feast. The meal is scheduled for around 2.00 pm. Will we still be socially distancing? Who knows but let's hope not!
