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.

we came up here again as it is a good place to let your dog off the lead and you can walk for miles. It is such a wonderful view of Daventry and you could even bring a picnic on a good sunny day.
