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.

Waleswood departure

It is with sadness that we bid farewell to the Waleswood after many months of renovation at NIRT.

However, there is good news, a new steam locomotive is due to arrive in time for the December Santa specials.
