From windmill lay-by, past windmill into woods via stile, downhill to corner of woods then across fields on PRoW to top. Wood could have been avoided by going straight across Newnham Hill And down.PeterD02/07/2020
Started from the lay-by next to the windmill and took a convoluted route zig zagging through pastures and through several gates. Pleasant top. Returned through the fields going due east direct to the road at the bridge and then up the roadhouse the lay-by. Better route on return. Northamptonshire completed yet again.Campbell Singer19/06/2020
Ascended from the parking space at the top of Newnham Hill, with the help of the Google map, showing the permissive access. There was once a permissive carpark just above the bridge crossing the by-pass, but it was closed and the gates locked due to anti-social behaviour. Judging by the litter and other trash from the remains of a barbeque by the windmill on top of Newnham Hill, this is understandable. Fortunately the permissive gates remain and are maintained by the farmer who I met at the last crossing point. He seemed very considerate and apparently interested in conservation.JohnW14/06/2020
A solo drive-by 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 followed fences and hedges past several small copses; the gates were chained shut. Finally made it to the pleasant domed summit in a sheep pasture. Decent wide views to south. PDF map:
From small lay-by on road to East near top of Newnham Hill. Nice stroll all in meadows on a cool, breezy but partly sunny June day.KC05/06/2020
From Windmill. Great little hill. Thanks for google tip to see the Natural England map showing all the gates and stiles (all different designs) Interesting that this map says - Access End Date 31/10/2016GordonAdshead04/06/2020
Northants re-completion. Visited after exploring High wood Wildlife trust site with Lesely. I parked up at 152m spot at A361 Jct with minor lane. Leseley waited while I walked up lane to gate then used edge of field to gate then edge of field to another gate with track leading to lush field and then via permissive swing gate at the top to enable acess to summit. Field Ssw is full of wildflowers such as Yellow rattle. Return as outward route.Dazingdale24/05/2020
Lots of sheep, and a single fox. A google for fox hill permissive paths daventry will get you a PDF map courtesy of Natural England. Beware the gate into to the woods next to the final gate to the summit - no exit at the bottomjohnkenyon17/05/2020
From E, layby, intricate stiled and gated permissive route via windmill and wood, gorgeous sunny morning. Level pasture summit.RHW15/05/2020
Parking on the minor road to the east.andrew brown16/04/2020
