Daventry Country Park, Northern Way, Daventry, NN11 2JB

Outdoor meetings start at 7pm so we can have as much daylight as possible.  Rain does not deter us from our outdoor meetings. It’s a great opportunity to meet other members and hopefully also see a few birds. 

Daventry Country Park is a 66-hectare Local Nature Reserve and popular park ideally situated on the urban fringe of Daventry, within one mile of the town centre and easily accessible by car, bicycle or on foot with the benefit of cycle ways and footpaths from the surrounding areas - just off the A425. The Park has been awarded the Country Parks Accreditation and also holds a Green Flag Award recognising it as being among the best green spaces in the country.  

It is owned and managed by Daventry District Council and although the reservoir is slightly out of the BOS area, the committee thought that members would enjoy a visit.  There are nature trails round the reservoir with accessible bird hides, and a wealth of wildlife.  ALL the facilities, café/toilets will be closed from 5pm.

Please Note:  A £2 parking charge is payable between 8am and 8pm and the pay and display machines at the car park are cash-only.  Please ensure that your ticket is clearly displayed behind your windscreen so that the front face is visible to the civil enforcement officer (CEO).  If one pay and display machine is not working, please use another.  A Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) may be incurred if you do not display a valid Pay and Display ticket or if you break any other car park regulation. Always read the signs carefully after parking. Car sharing is advised.
