Hucknall, 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 !

Hucknall, a market town 7 miles north west of Nottingham is surrounded by farmland on the west bank of the Leen Valley. The town’s highest point is Long Hill falling to the Trent Valley in the south. To the north-west lie the Musk Hills and Annesley whilst to the east lies Bestwood Country Park. Beyond Papplewick to the north east lies Newstead Abbey the ancestral home and last resting place of Lord Byron. What a wonderful opportunity to see Newstead Abbey from the air !
