History

The area that includes the Spinney is listed at Grade II in English Heritage’s Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest.  Historical features within the Spinney include wood banks that now mark the boundary between Daventry District Council and Northampton Borough Council.  These provide an insight into the history of the landscape and will be protected from damage or removal. 

 

An archaeological cropmark interpreted as of prehistoric origin is located 50 metres to the west of the Spinney’s eastern boundary.  While this falls outside the area of the Pocket Park, this feature can also be noted as of historical interest.
