Locations

The event will start at Blackthorn Wood Golf Club

Located near to Corby in Northamptonshire at Cottingham, the cafe at the golf complex will provide breakfast before setting out straight into the Welland valley.

The lunchtime halt will be at Grimsthorpe Castle, near Bourne.

Rising majestically from the undulating landscape of south Lincolnshire, Grimsthorpe Castle is set in extensive parkland designed by Capability Brown.

One of Hidden England’s gems, the castle was the final masterpiece of Sir John Vanbrugh, architect of Blenheim Palace and Castle Howard. The manicured lawns and impressive approach lead to the castle and exquisite formal gardens.

Weekend Valley Wanderers can elect to picnic in the park or take refreshments in the tearoom.

The event will finish on The Meadows at Stamford

The end of the event will, appropriately, be on the banks of the River Welland at Stamford. The large grassy area of The Meadows will host finishers with afternoon tea provided and there will also be the opportunity to explore the fascinating town.
