Hunsbury Hill Country Park

1 miles (1.2 km)

This country park and Iron Age hill fort are located just to the south of Northampton.
You can enjoy a series of footpaths taking you up to the ancient fort which stands at a height of 113 metres. There's a nice wide lawn which is ideal for picnics on warm days.
To continue your walking in the area head just a mile to the east to visit Delapre Abbey Park. You'll find 500 acres of parkland, lakes, woodland and gardens surrounding a fine mansion which was once the site of a 12th century abbey.
Just a 10 minute walk west there's also the Grand Union Canal Walk with easy waterside trails along the towpath.

Danes Camp. This was an important Iron Age hill fort, now incorporated into Hunsbury Hill Country Park. It was occupied around 2,000 to 2,500 years ago and may have been the stronghold of a celtic chieftain. This is part of the interior of the site, which is surrounded by a deep circular ditch.
