|Directions||From the A361 south of Daventry, turn east at the mini roundabout in Byfield towards Woodford Halse. Within 2 miles turn left at the T junction and within 1 mile at top of long hill, turn right. This is a quiet road but do take care as this turn is on a left hand bend. Turn into the farm entrance on the right after 600 yards, then right again into the site.
|Description||Invitation to The Photography Group
This is one of our favourite sites, set in the beautiful rolling countryside of Northamptonshire; this site is on a working farm. The site is level with good views and, weather permitting, lovely sunrises and sunsets.
This site is a good base for exploring the surrounding area by car, by bike or on foot.
In the area
Canon�s Ashby � 2.2 miles. Elizabethan manor house set in beautiful gardens with an impressive collection of wall paintings and Jacobean plasterwork. Remains of an Augustinian priory.
Daventry � 8 miles. Historic market town has one of the largest market squares in England.
Banbury � 12 miles. The modern Castle Quay Shopping Centre, and the Banbury Museum, just alongside the Oxford Canal. There are interesting waterside walks along the canal system in Banbury.
If you would like to extend your stay before or after the meet, please contact Mr & Mrs Ivens directly on 01327 361351 to enquire about their 5 van site.
|Meet Details||A5 CLOSURE AT TOWCESTER. Important if using this route for Woodford Halse. Many thanks to Andy for the info. The A5 through Towcester will be closed as a through route during the Woodford Halse Meet. Indeed it will be closed from the 23rd July (Monday) until November !! We understand that a long diversion will be signed. That involves the A508 from Old Stratford to M1 Junction 15, north on the M1 to Junction 15A, and back to Towcester on the A43. This will apply to both North and Southbound traffic. Local access to supermarkets and shops will be maintained somehow, but I do not know by which routes/directions Anyone travelling that way will have an extended journey, so best avoided if possible. If there are any problems on the M1 then the traffic will be horrific.|
