Burton Dassett Country ParkCategory Outdoor Activities, For the Family, For the Kids, For Adults
Providing extensive views over unspoilt rolling countryside, the Burton Dassett Hills became a Country Park run by Warwickshire County Council in 1971.
Covering 100 acres of ironstone hills the Park is a former quarry site nowadays used for sheep grazing and leisure activities including walking, picnics, kite flying, radio-controlled model glider flying, geocaching, motor hillclimb and more. It is steeped in a history reflecting the lives of the people who lived there.
The Country Park sub-divides into several hills and quarrying at Pleasant Hill in 1908 uncovered 35 skeletons in a Saxon graveyard from the 6th or 7th Century.
