Arnold, Nottinghamshire

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 !

Arnold is a market town on the borders of Sherwood Forest, 4 miles north-east of the centre of Nottingham and 10 miles south-east of Mansfield. Market Warsop lies to the north while Newark-on-Trent is located to the east and West Bridgeford to the south. Close by, on Cockpit Hill, are the remains of a Roman encampment. It has many listed buildings, is known for its lace, soap-making, brewing and hosiery industry and is the birthplace of artist Richard Parks Bonnington (1802-1825).
