Landscapes and Timescapes

A curated walk hosted by published, local historian Dr Peter Hill who will focus on the ways the people of Corby past and present have interacted with their landscape and the resulting myths, folklore, art, literature and song. Meet at Greedy Pig Café, 291 Rockingham Road (opposite Aldi) Corby, NN17 2AE.

Under Peter’s guidance, epic historical dramas unfold in the gardens, wooded grounds and topiaries of Rockingham Castle. Expect to encounter stories of medieval attacks on the castle, jousting, a headless horseman, Charles Dickens’ connection with the castle and more. 

This hour long walking exploration begins half a mile from the castle itself to allow for parking. We have allowed an extra 30 minutes to cover this distance each way.
