Waleswood arrives at Hunsbury

  New Logo and Name Change

It's all changed up at the hill. With the new management board being elected back in the Summer, the board has been busy overseeing and implementing a number of changes to the infrastructure and the Trusts Marketing and Publicity. One of the major changes is the introduction of a new corporate logo alongside the name 'Ironstone Heritage Centre'.

The new logo will hopefully enable us to develop the facilities here at Hunsbury Hill, in partnership with various groups and individuals, and tell the history of the site from the Iron Age Hill Fort, Green Lane Drovers Road. The Ironstone Quarry through to its modern day use as Headquarters for the Northamptonshire Ironstone Railway Trust and a Country Park .

 

Welcome to the Ironstone Heritage Centre

The Ironstone Heritage Centre is the home of the Northamptonshire Ironstone Railway Trust. It is based within the Grounds of The Hunsbury Hill Country Park which is located at Hunsbury Hill, Southwest of Northampton . The Centre has a small museum and café, workshop and of course its award winning themed gardens. It also features a 1.5 mile long Heritage Railway line that runs through the park .
The line is mainly dedicated to freight working, featuring many sharp curves and steep gradients which were typical of the Industrial Railway. Rides are available in a variety of vehicles including a converted brake van.
