It's a hill near Daventry, nice for a walk. Take your dog, but pick up it's poo. Nice views. Car park, and thats it.

I enjoy walking my dog around Borough hill. Please be aware though that the only dog poo bin is near the car park. There are no bins around the hill itself. There are some fantastic viewpoints to see from up here.

Superb place to let the dogs run free. Don't forget poo bags and free parking. Certain times of the year there will be cows in the fields

Iron Age fort with history throughout its existence. Skylarks song a particular pleasure. Green woodpeckers a common sight

This is a lovely walk with or without a dog! It is very high up so can be bracing! Nice to get away from cars and take in a hill top view of Daventry.

Great place to walk the dog or just to have a nice walk. It can be a little uneven and there is often cattle up there so best to watch you step to avoid a nasty surprise, but it has some great views over Daventry...More
