Welcome to the Ironstone Heritage Centre
The Ironstone Heritage Centre is the home of the Northamptonshire Ironstone Railway Trust. It is based within the Grounds of The Hunsbury Hill Country Park which is located at Hunsbury Hill, Southwest of Northampton. The Centre 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.
