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

out in the fresh air. Fantastic !
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).
This interesting market town is good place
from which to enjoy a hot air balloon ride.
