Gringley-on-the-Hill, 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 !

The village of Gringley-on-the-Hill is situated on the A6311 within a few miles west of Beckingham. It is located on a 250ft hill providing excellent views across the surrounding fields and the countryside beyond. There is a prehistoric fort on Beacon hill and within 6 miles to the east stands the medieval building of Gainsborough Hall in Lincolnshire. To the immediate north lies the village of Walkeringham, with Misterton and the River Idle beyond. This attractive village has many red-bricked homes farmhouses and their related buildings. Wonderful place for Hot Air Ballooning !
