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.

Ghost train reported

Haunting

Strange goings on at NIRT. We are receiving reports of strange activities going on at night. If you have heard anything, please let us know via the contact form. We are setting up CCTV to try to capture this spooky activity. If you are a ghost hunter or know of someone who is; then please let us know as we are setting up a ghost vigil.

Return of Steam

On Saturday 14th September we hope to have the first appearance of our new steam locomotive STEAMY. Please note, we will not be able to use STEAMY for passenger trains for a little while.

Watch out for more details of the coming Heritage weekend. As well as the steam locomotive we hope to have on site vintage motor vehicles including a bus and a tank!
