1st hill of 10 today with my girlfriend (driver) with the main objective being to get to 500 tumps in a year. M1 South from Nottingham to jct 19 then A5133 to Naseby parking directly opposite the monument then up to the Obelisk and walk around. I read about the Naseby battle on wikipedia beforehand. Fascinating. One of the easiest tumps to bag!Dazingdale30/12/2017

Cycled past this hill on many occasions over the years and certainly visited the monument, but no idea of date. This visit was also part of a cycle ride. According to the information on site, the summit once housed a windmill and was named after it.JohnW02/09/2017

Across road from layby, memorial to Battle of Naseby in 1645. Then pilgrimage to Cold Ashby trig nearby, where all OS re-triangulation of Britain began in 1936.Aye Jimmy04/08/2017

En route to my brother's. Completed Northants again. Interesting inscription on the obelisk. I suspect the benefactors were not republicans!Campbell Singer15/04/2017
My sort of hill. 20 ms from car and historical interest.Barbara Singer15/04/2017
Topping up Northants on way home from Wales.ngthack11/04/2017
Northampton recompleted. I thought I might have been here 30 years ago, but now not so sure. As the sign board says, the Generals could not see much from this high point.GordonAdshead08/04/2017
Obelisk in trees on 2m artificial mound. Topping up Northants en route to Wales.RHW07/04/2017
Fun map contour scrutiny led to my finding this new TumP to add to my Nothants Tumps in a day outing. Well worth also going to the various battlefield lookouts with excellent info boards, especially the monument at Naseby Fields where, to put a tingle down your spine, be there on your own at a deserted moment and look north. Then imagine a misty June morning in 1645 and facing you is a one and a half mile wide wall of 4000 opposing Royalist horses and 3000 foot soldiers lined up for battle armed with muskets, swords and pikes - outcome uncertain.Chris Pearson23/03/2017
The date is approximate. After I retired in 1994 I started revisiting Cambridge, and on my way from Bristol I often passed through Naseby to avoid the then awful junction between the M1, M6 and A14 (now of course vastly improved). In 2006 my visits became more frequent. As I often stopped at Naseby Fields, Naseby Hill, or both, I have entered this for the first trip in 2007 for which I have a precise date. It won't be far out!David Purchase15/03/2007
