Gliding peacefully across beautiful countryside
early on a summer morning, or in the evening
is an unforgettable experience. Unlike other
aircraft, you can watch the hot air balloon
being assembled before your eyes - just
like a giant tent ! Then climb aboard and
admire the view from the basket - no doors
closed, or windows to sit behind, it's all
out in the fresh air. Fantastic !
Woodhouse is a town situated close to the
junction of the M1 motorway at junction
27 and the A608. It is within easy reach
of Felley Priory to the south and extensive
countryside to the south alongside the motorway.
The Derbyshire boundary lies approximately
3.5 miles to the west separated from Annesley
Woodhouse by the motorway and the villages
of Selston, Jacksdale and Bagthorpe. The
villages of Annesley, with Annesley Hall,
a fine example of a country mansion, and
Newstead, with Newstead Abbey, home of Lord
Byron, are situated within a mile to the
east. The village of Nuncargate lies to
the north, just south of Kirkby-in-Ashfield.
This is an interesting place from which
to enjoy a hot air balloon ride.
