East Carlton Countryside Park

Following guidance from the Government and Northamptonshire being put into tier 4 most leisure facilities will close from midnight tonight (30.12.2020). Emails and messages are currently being circulated to members and further information will be available on social media in due course. The teams are currently working on providing virtual classes where possible for leisure members, details and links will be shared within the next few days.

As this has come at such short notice the collection for leisure members payment has already been sent through to the bank and we are unable to stop collection, we will however freeze memberships and not collect again until a month after we reopen.

Some good news though, Priors Hall Golf Course can remain open but there will be new guidelines to follow as during the first lock down earlier this year which will mean that only 2 balls will be able to be played, tee times will also be increased. We are currently working through existing bookings to rearrange where possible, please bear with us during this time. Please give the course a call before you play to confirm your booking prior to travelling to the course 01536 260756

Our Parks and Play areas will remain open throughout the borough, East Carlton Park Café will remain as takeaway only.

As per the governments announcements, Northamptonshire is now tier 4, for more information please see here: https://www.corby.gov.uk/corby-borough-council-update-northamptonshire-m...

We are open during lockdown.  The cafe will continue to offer a takeaway service.  We ask all our visitors to continue to follow social distancing guidelines.

Visit one of the most beautiful and active Country Parks in the County where you can be guaranteed a fantastic day out - especially if you bring the children and the dog!  FREE PARKING!!
