Welcome to the Northampton Ironstone Trust

The Northampton Ironstone Trust is based within the Grounds of The Hunsbury Hill Country Park which is located at Hunsbury Hill, Southwest of Northampton. The trust 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 of which a small section has been approved for public use.
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.

Steam experience

Dunlop D6

In the new year we will be making available driver experience days - the cost of these will be around £325 per day. For this you will get the opportunity to eat breakfast off the shovel, work alongside our experienced firemen and drivers on the plate and driving the locomotive for an entire day. Half days will also be available (£225). We advise booking early, as we expect a lot of takers for this.
