About the event

Staggered starts from 11.00 to 11.45 am. 1.5 to 2 hours walking, mostly pavements but a couple of tracks LIMITED to 24 members (6 teams of 4). Please email me if you have arranged a team yourself, otherwise I will put you in groups.
The historic village of Geddington has been a populated site since prehistory, mentioned in the Domesday Book. It had greatest importance in medieval times with the siting of a Royal Hunting Lodge. We shall be looking for clues at a leisurely pace (tie breaker based on random questions, not time). You can use The Star toilet after 12.00 accessed from the car park at the rear. Coffee and Tea sold at Café Oak beforehand if required.
If you want to stay for lunch, carvery or snacks these can be prebooked at Café Oak (01536 745040) or The Star Inn (01536 745990), or you can take a picnic lunch to eat at the cricket ground. You can extend the visit to make a circular walk afterwards to visit the Newton-in-the Willows Dovecote, Field Centre and Churchyard, and possibly the Dovecote Buttery & Farm Shop. This does include stiles though.
