Revisited on way back from Fox HillPeterD02/07/2020
My second visit to Newnham Hill, this time on my way to bag nearby Fox Hill on a mild cloudy-bright late afternoon. Parked near the bypass bridge on the minor road to the east. Walked up to the derelict windmill then on to Fox Hill.Skip10/06/2020

Small dirt layby at SP 5764 6089, through gap in hedgerow and over wooden fencing.jonglew19/11/2018
Track a few yards downhill is an easier option than doing battle with the hedge. En route to Warwick races.Bramley04/10/2018
Solo. Squeezed through hawthorn hedge. Summit appears to be mid way between windmill and radio mast. Good 270 views. Nicest spot today so far. 1 of 5 Northants hills today: Badby Down, Arbury Hill, Big Hill Staverton, Newnham Hill and Borough Hill.Pete West16/09/2018

Quick visit from layby at road summit, through gap-cum-delapidated stile in hedge. there are trods and paths and access gates to the summit area and a path down through the wood below the windmill, which has a vandal proof bench next to it.pwheeler09/03/2018
Handy gap in hedge by laybyColin Crawford09/01/2018
5th hill of 10 on a leisurely Northants drive and explore day from Nottingham with my girlfriend as driver, visiting Naseby Hill, Honey Hill, Ashby Grange Hill and Borough Hill then upto this one, parking right outside the gap in the hedge. I first walked upto the impressive windmill remains before circling around the flat sheep-topped top. It will not get the award for most dramatic summit but certainly has a certain pastoral charm. My highest recorded point was 199m @ SP 57600 60864. Afterwards I hopped back over fence and we set off for Everdon Hill....Dazingdale30/12/2017
Parked in lay-by, descended road southwards to climb back up 50m of ascent, and wandered around field for highest point, several contenders, I thought 57597 60880, but could have been anywhere. Lovely views and enjoyed coffee break on metal bench by windmill, before driving over to next tump of Badby Down.pdantic16/11/2017
Sunny morning and lovely old windmill.Dugswell206/08/2017
Through gap in hedge from layby into flat field with windmill adorned with graffiti images. HP very vague.Aye Jimmy06/08/2017
Pleasant spot. Walked up lane from Daventry and then walked to Staverton Clump, Arbury Hill and Badby where I caught bus back to Banbury and train to Londontrimarc231/05/2017
An old windmill and photovoltaic panels on the same hill top -both renewables of their time. What will be next?Chris Pearson23/03/2017
From layby in lane, purpose made gap in hedge accesses field. Windmill tower with seat and pleasent view at N end of summit area, comms mast at S end. High point between the two.RichardM16/02/2017

Very foggy. Got to GR but couldn't even see the windmill.clivevilla02/11/2015
Most challenging bit was getting through hedgePeterD09/09/2015
Bit of a fight to get through hedge.ngthack22/08/2015
Braunston to Daventry. The hedge gap & 'stile' also involves negotiating a barbed wire fence to join the sheep currently grazing the top field. A stile remnant gives access to the windmill enclosure with a locked gate climb to rejoin the road.Smudge20/02/2015
An evening 'drive by' to bag Newnham Hill. A minor road flanks the east side of the hill and at its crest is a small layby: beside this pull-in, a gap in the hedge gives easy access to the grassy summit plateau. From the parked car, it takes barely two minutes to walk over the flattish summit to the derelict windmill. There's a fine view south across the valley of the infant River Nene to Newnham.Skip23/10/2014
Parked easily in lay-by to east. Stile through hedge (bit hidden) then to grass summit - could be anywhere.destaylor03/10/2014

Flattish pasture S of old windmill tower. Layby, stile into pasture, public access en route to ex windmill.RHW25/02/2012
Cycled over this hill on numerous occasions in the past. This was one occasion when driving over that I explored beyond the style. The date is an estimate.JohnW20/11/2010
