As part of Northamptonshire Police's major recruitment campaign, the Force has produced a series of videos to promote the job.

One of the Heroes of Northamptonshire is PC Hannah Billing. As a girl she was bullied, but she had a goal in mind, and nothing was going to get in her way. Listen to how a young Hannah Billing pushed through the stigma and backlash to become a police officer as one of our #HeroesOfNorthamptonshire.

Early spring at Canons Ashby

Early spring at Canons Ashby

Posted: Sat, 11 Jan 2020 14:59 by Will Smith

Canons Ashby reopens for a new season on 3 February, just in time for the early spring blooms. If you visit in February or March, watch out for little clusters of spring bulbs here and there splashing the ground with whites, purples and yellows. The spring bulbs have been improving year on year so we're hoping for even more Snowdrops in 2020, mostly situated on the main path between car park and house. More »

This time last year I shared news of our new staircase carpet, made on a loom nearly 100 years old – this has now been completed and is in place in the house. We have made a video about it which is available to view on our website from the end of January, so you can see the historic loom in action and find out more about this work.

You can find out more about the work that's going on to care for Canons Ashby on our website. www.nationaltrust.org.uk/canons-ashby
