Summer Camp at East Carlton Park

Do you remember

By Michael Mahon

It is well-known for EastCarltonCountryPark, which attracts over 400,000 visitors each year (according to Corby Borough Council) from the local area of Corby, Kettering, Market Harborough and further field. The CountryPark has a heritage centre which contains models and historical information about the Corby Steelworks. It has a play park and cafe.

There is a large mansion house, formerly known as Carlton Hall, now called East Carlton Hall, which was used by Corby Borough Council. It was largely rebuilt in 1870 with red brick in the style of a French château. It is said that the stone wall which surrounds the south and east of the parkland was the re-used stone of the old Hall. East Carlton is one of the Thankful Villages that suffered no fatalities during the Great War of 1914 to 1918.
