Hunsbury Hill WI began its life in March 1983 in the charming location of Hunsbury Hill Farm. Although not a working farm, it was remote, situated on the edge of the borough boundary of Northampton down a winding unmade lane. Slowly, but surely, over the years our membership out grew the available space and we moved to our new premises in Camp Hill Community Centre in early 2008. The centre is spacious and modern and suits our members’ needs very well.
