Thrapston, Northamptonshire

Flying over the countryside in a hot air balloon is an unforgettable experience. It is the most romantic form of flight, and a fantastic new perspective of the world below !

Thrapston is a small market town close to the River Nene at the junction of the A14 and the A45. It seems possible that it was the site of a minor Roman settlement with remains of Roman buildings having been found at nearby Ringstead, four miles to the south west. It is also recorded that Thrapston was once home to George Washington’s grandfather. It is conveniently located for access to the more extensive amenities in the larger town of nearby Kettering, approximately seven miles away. Thrapston has its own camping and caravanning site and is situated within walking distance of the Cambridgeshire county border. To get another perspective though, take a hot air balloon flight over this attractive area. Balloon rides are fun !
