Field Trip to Summerleys, Northants
Forthcoming Field Trip to Summerleys (Northants WT Reserve), on 7th July 2019
The meet–up time for this trip is 0930hrs in the car park. The car park can be found by heading north-east from Northampton on the A45 for a few miles. Turn left off the A45 on the exit to Great Doddington. At the top of the slip-road turn left over the A45 and after a few hundred yards turn right. This lane leads away downhill and then over a narrow bridge. After a further ¾ of a mile the car park will be seen on the left. It is signposted. The reserve hosts several hides but no other facilities are provided. The walk around the site is perhaps about 2 ½ miles in length. The site has a number of pits surrounded by scrubland and hedgerows, and should provide us with a good trip list. Hope to see you there.
