Borough Hill which is now a country park where people can enjoy beautiful views and walks is at the eastern side of Daventry and is full of history from many eras including two Iron Age hill forts, a roman villa and farming settlement. They also found evidence of items from eras in history including the Neolithic, Bronze, Iron, Saxon, Viking and of course Roman. This site was first excavated in 1823 by historian and archaeologist George Baker which was when the Roman Villa was discovered. The remains were then fully excavated and recorded by Beriah Botfield in 1852. Some of the antiquities found and Botfield’s notes and manuscripts are displayed at the British Museum. This site became a scheduled monument under the Scheduled Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979 on 5th December 1928. Borough Hill also placed a part in the build up to the Battle of Naseby on 14th June 1645 which saw King Charles I destroyed by Oliver Cromwell’s New Model Army. Charles 1 Royalist Army used Borough Hill as a base the week before the battle before moving off towards Market Harborough and into the path of the Parliamentarian forces led by Sir Thomas Fairfax.
