Arbury Hill

Arbury Hill is 225 m (837 ft) tall and is the highest point in the county of Northamptonshire. Located 9 km southwest of the town of Daventry, the slopes sits on a drainage divide between three of the major catchment areas: the River Nene (to the north, south, and east), the river Cherwell (as it feeds into the Thames to the south-west), and to the River Leam (which feeds the River Severn, to the west and north-west).

On the summit of the hill are the remnants of an Iron Age hillfort. It is only visible in the form of a square ditch and embankment stretching 200 metres across.
